The Silver K Gallery is proud to present a special exhibition dedicated to the works of English rock musician, songwriter, singer and artist Ronnie Wood.

Coinciding with the current sold-out Rolling Stone Australian Tour, this strictly limited event brings together a diverse collection of paintings, drawings and prints depicting the life and times of the Rolling Stones, as well as Wood's own personal musical heroes, including Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Chuck Berry.

Wood formally trained at the Ealing Art College in the 1960s and notably created the cover artwork for Eric Clapton's 1988 box set Crossroads.

Today Wood is well-regarded as an accomplished artist with the South Bank Show even dedicating an entire program to his art career in 2004. His rich and vibrant collection of paintings, drawings and prints have been exhibited around the world and were turned into a clothing line by Liberty & Co in 2008.

Much of Wood's art offers a behind the scenes look at the Rolling Stones, from their early years in England to their explosion onto the world stage.

This is a rare opportunity to view one of the finest collections of Wood's artwork ever put together.

Opening on Saturday 8th November until Sunday 14th December 2014. Admission & Catalogue is priced as follows; Adults: $10.00; Children and Concession: $5.00. Please note the gallery is open Wednesdays through to Sundays but is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

In addition to The Art of Ronnie Wood, the Silver K Gallery is also presenting Robert Freeman's and Dezo Hoffman's most famous photographs of The Beatles; The Elvis Photographic Collection and John Lennon Lithographs.

Wow and double wow. I visited this on my list to go, this morning Sunday 23rd November. 3 rooms full of amazing and inspiring paintings by Ronnie Woods. I loved loved them all.there are wonderful photographs too of The Rolling Stones, Beatles too.......but I'm not giving it all away. You seriously won't be disappointed. There is an upstairs room also full of wonderful things to see and a ........John Lennon. .....Ronnie Woods wasn't just brilliant at portraits and catching the moment but he was also awesome too at painting animals too.

Whatever you do, don't miss this fantastic exhibition,......for me I'll try and go there again before it ends.
Like I happened to say to the gallery owner, one would just realize that Ronnie Woods was a band member of The Rolling Stones a guitarist, a singer etc and more but I've never known nor realized he was such a fantastic artist. Wow. One knows and knew that John Lennon was into the arts and Ringo too but very low profile with Ronnie Woods.
An amazing talented man.....
it's a blast!

As "Molly" Meldrum would say, "do yourself a favour! "
