Now on show at The Taproom, The Magnificent Seven packs a punch.
Featuring seven large-scale works by established Taradale artist Phillip Head, it portrays seven iconic musicians – Jimi Hendricks, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Robert Johnson and Brian Jones, who all died young – at or about 27 – thereby joining the famed “27 Club”.
Since launching at Castlemaine’s Shedshaker Taproom bar earlier this month The Magnificent Seven has been hogging the limelight with a number of the works quickly snapped up. Full story in today’s Castlemaine Mail.
