This time last year, Ronnie Wood had an art exhibition in one of the art galleries at the top of Guildford High Street entitled Ronnie Wood 50 Decades. He now has a new exhibition entitled Ronnie Wood Raw Instinct.

As well as a couple of original works of art there is one of his guitars and a few handwritten songs.

Well worth a visit, as is popping in the nearby art galley and looking at the London street scenes by Henderson Cisz.

And, pop down to Guildford House to the Craft Fair to see the amazing kaleidoscopes, beautiful optical instruments and works of art.

Jimi Hendrix Little Wing, The Corrs featuring Ronnie Wood.

Well she’s walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that’s running wild
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind.

When I’m sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
It’s alright she says it’s alright
Take anything you want from me, anything
Anything.

Fly on little wing,
Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing

One of the most beautiful songs ever written.

For Annie.

I think talent is born. The seed is there. The seed is there and it just needs developing. Everything I’ve done I had to do. I had to play in a band, had to be part of The Stones, I had to play a guitar. I had to paint, I had to be like Michelangelo. — Ronnie Wood

Last Friday I was in Guildford. The last thing I expected to stumble upon was an art exhibition by Ronnie Wood, but if that was not enough an art exhibition by Bob Dylan too.

Decades, The Blue Smoke Suite and Stones Raw, by Ronnie Wood was released 17 November 2012.

Ronnie Wood is both musician and artist. He has worked as singer, guitarist and songwriter with The Faces, Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones. He has been painting and drawing since age 12, even longer than he has been playing guitar. He intertwines the tow, recording his tour sand the people he meets an dperforms with through his art.

The Rolling Stones have this week embarked on a world tour to celebrate 50 years of performing.

Forest Gallery is a small art gallery at the top of Guildford High Street.
