Ronnie Wood has said he's pleased to see his art on the walls of an Ohio gallery instead of in his crowded studio.

The Rolling Stones guitarist says in the studio his paintings, pen and pencil drawings and mixed-media drawings look "like postage stamps" compared to the display that opened Tuesday at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown.

The Butler Institute says the exhibition is the first for Ronnie at a major American museum and runs through until November 21.

Youngstown's The Vindicator newspaper reports the show is dominated by celebrity portraits, including those of Stones bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts.

The opening drew Stones fans such as Lena Natale, who said she drove four hours, listening to the band's music all the way.
