Ohio: Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is coming to Ohio with a different kind of solo show, spotlighting his paintings and other art.

The Butler Institute of American Art says the exhibition opening is the first for Wood at a major American museum.

The 63-year-old British musician plans to be at the museum for a reception on the show`s opening day, September 21.

Butler chief curator and director Louis Zona describes Wood`s art style as lively and appealing. The museum notes that the rocker picked up a paint brush at the age of 12, before he started playing guitar.

The exhibition includes 30 of Wood`s paintings, 22 pen-and-pencil drawings and seven mixed-media works.

The exhibit runs through November 21.
