IN the sixties they told the world to Paint it Black but 50 years on Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is using a far broader pallet of colours.

Next week a newly curated exhibition showcasing a collection of artwork by the rock legend will be unveiled at Castle Galleries in Harrogate.

The exhibition will feature a range of works created during The Rolling Stones’ 50 & Counting tour including portrait prints of his famous band members, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Mick Jagger and original works from previous collections – all charting the iconic band on stage and on tour. A brand new piece featuring music icon Jimi Hendrix will also be launched at the exhibition – ahead of what would have been the musician’s 73rd birthday at the end of the month. Speaking ahead of the exhibition Wood said: “There is no kind of therapy like the one you have from starting and seeing a picture through to the end. In a secret sort of way, I like the people that I draw to see the way I’ve depicted them. Unlike music, it’s a solo effort. There’s no one else to blame.”

The exhibition begins on Friday November 13.

Graham Golisti, Gallery Manager for Harrogate’s Castle Galleries, said: “This latest exhibition of Ronnie Wood’s art is a stunning homage to his five decades in music, and an exciting collection that any of the band’s fans will love.”
