Ronnie Wood shows us his etchings

Stones legend brings his latest art exhibition to the city for, er, Beatles Week. Fancy going to the opening party?

Ronnie Wood shows us his etchings

IF YOU care not for The Beatles in this Fab Four-loving city of ours, but still like a bit of an arty ageing rocker now and then, you will doubtless be pleased to know that Stones legend Ronnie Wood will be mounting an exhibition of his work, which just happens to coincide with International Beatles Week.

The Rolling Stone, in between rocking, rolling and whatever else he’s up to these days, has become something of an established and prolific artist.

Working with paint, screen-printing, woodcuts and etching methods, Wood has created a wide variety of artworks, from bold, abstract pieces to intimate portraits of fellow band members and other showbiz pals.

Tour sketches and landscapes also form a large part of the artist's portfolio. The Liverpool exhibition will feature original works and prints.

Will he or won't he make an appearance? Like pop stars a quarter of his age, who knows?

Nevertheless, if you’d like to be the first to see Ronnie’s collection, we have a pair of tickets to give away for a private viewing on Monday 18 August, before it opens to the public the next day. Enter your details below.

Closing Date: Friday 15 August

Ronnie Wood Exhibition
Liverpool Academy of Arts, 32 Seel Street

I used to play in Victoria Woods when I was a child. Never seen The Great Supreno there tho. Although a couple of times we heard a noise going 'piff paff poof'. After we got scared playing in Victoria Woods we moved on to playing in Ronnie Woods. Whilst playing there I befriended a young Brazilian girl who wanted to be a waitress or travel the world with an ageing rock star. I wish I knew how she got on. Anyway I'm off on holiday to The Cosa Nostra to get away from all the gangsters and robbers The Prof is scaring me with.

I'm sure Ronnie will be welcomed - Liverpool people are very welcoming and Beatles fans in particular. Anyway the supposed rivalry was very friendly and, besides, members of both groups were always in and out of each others houses.

I think you will find that since he split from Victoria Wood, he prefers to be known as The Great Suprendo. Best get it right, we don't want to offend seeing as...good heavens, my wife has just informed me that this man was one of the Great Train Robbers who hid out in Brazil. We'll be having The Krays next with their awful Rabbit Rabbit song.
