MORNING REPORT

A Stone Rolls With Other Skill

November 11, 1987|JOHN VOLAND | Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Mick may be working on his solo projects, Keith might jam with Chuck Berry and Charlie may work out with a jazz big band, but the Rolling Stones' rhythm guitarist and sometime bassist Ron Wood has a whole other bag--painting. Woody even has a show at Christie's in London, which was launched Monday night to great (and expensive) fanfare. Wood's favorite media, as evidenced in the show, are silk-screen printing, woodcuts and dry-point etchings. What's it all for? "I need the money," said Wood at the opening. "It represents a little something extra for the kids' (Wood has four) future." More than a little, actually: Christie's Contemporary Galleries charges anywhere from $473 to more than $6,000 for a Wood original, and there can be up to 50 prints of each work.
