Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood is set to 'Paint It Black' at his US art exhibition

This September will see the unveiling of an art exhibition from a man familiar to millions for his music.

The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngston, Ohio in America is set to host the first major exhibition of works from British musician Ronnie Wood.

Famous for his guitar work with The Rolling Stones, as well as Rod Stewart and the Small Faces, Wood is set to attend the opening reception of the show, on September 21 this year.

Having produced art since the age of 12, Wood's exhibition will feature drawings, prints and paintings, whose style has been described as "lively and appealing" by Butler's chief curator Louis Zona.

Wood's personal website highlights some of his work, with many of the pieces focusing on the musicians he has played with during world tours and recording sessions.

The vibrant works include a screenprint study of the iconic Mick Jagger in full "Sympathy for the Devil" stage attire, as witnessed during the 1994 Voodoo Lounge tour.

The works are set to attract interest from art and Rolling Stones memorabilia collectors alike. 

Recently we reported on the growing demand for Rolling Stones memorabilia at auction in recent years.

Today, a 3x5 autographed card by Mick Jagger is worth £495.

Yet, the value of memorabilia like Jagger's autograph and Wood's artwork to collectors is starting to rise.

Increasing demand for Rolling Stones memorabilia has seen collectibles like signed photographs of the band experience a rise in value from £995 to £5,500 in just ten years, according to the PFC40 autograph index.

With this in mind, Wood's exhibition of 30 paintings, 22 pen and pencil drawings as well as seven mixed media works could prove an ideal opportunity for those looking to invest in celebrity collectibles.
