Tusk Event in London: 'In Conversation with Ronnie Wood'
An exclusive evening with Tusk's longest-standing patron, Ronnie Wood.
The legendary guitarist with the Rolling Stones is inviting Tusk supporters to an intimate reception, talk and auction on Thursday 28th April at Ham Yard Hotel in its fun, 'urban village' setting in the heart of London's Soho when he will give a very personal insight of his love of Africa, wildlife and art.
To mark the occasion Ronnie has also very kindly created 15 limited edition double sided relief bronze sculptures of a rhino standing on a slate base (59cm x 44cm x 15cm). This special piece depicts ‘Spike’ the rhino that Ronnie adopted and named during a visit to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya.
Anyone who buys an edition of 'Spike' ahead of the event will be invited to meet and be photographed with Ronnie in the Green Room. Each sculpture will also be personalised.
If you are interested in previewing or securing one of these sculptures produced in support of Tusk in advance of the event, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible. One edition of the bronze will be auctioned on the night and there will also be a unique opportunity to acquire some rare rock memorabilia.
Ronnie Wood became a patron of Tusk in 1991. Before setting out on his extraordinary rock 'n roll career, Ronnie received formal training at Ealing College of Art, London. He continues to paint and draw whilst on tour with the Rolling Stones and his work has been exhibited all over the world and is found in many notable art collections. A selection of his work will be exhibited and on sale on the night.
