Critically acclaimed artist, musician, song writer, and esteemed Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood will collaborate with Ashridge House on a unique summer exhibition this August. Ronnie Wood x Ashridge House will see Ronnie present a considerable collection of original artworks including some of his most treasured paintings, a series of sculptures and a selection of etchings within the extraordinary interiors of Ashridge House. Many of the works are previously unseen and the exhibition will also include new pieces that he has produced during lockdown.
There will be a room dedicated to Ronnie’s paintings of Ashridge House and its spectacular grounds. Other highlights will include many of Ronnie’s favourite paintings, hand-picked for the Ashridge collaboration, plus a remarkable new large-scale tapestry of Ronnie’s original painting interpreting the iconic Beggar’s Banquet album that will hang in the imposing entrance of Ashridge House. Ashridge House is rarely open to the public and the week-long exhibition will give visitors a chance to enjoy Ronnie’s art while exploring the beautiful, historic house as well as its idyllic grounds.
Ronnie Wood x Ashridge House will open to the public 22-27 August from 10am-4pm. Timed, socially-distanced slots will be available to pre-book via the Ashridge House website and will include access to the gardens.
