The artwork of Masters Apprentices legend the late Jim Keays will be on display at the FAD Gallery in Melbourne from 10 May, 2019.
As frontman for the Masters Apprentices, often called Australia’s Rolling Stones, Jim Keays was an Australian rock pioneer.
The Masters Apprentices had a string of rock hits in the 60s and 70s starting with ‘Undecided’, ‘Buried and Dead’, ‘Living In A Child’s Dream’, ‘Elevator Driver’, ‘5:10 Man’, ‘Think About Tomorrow Today’, ‘Turn Up Your Radio’ and ‘Because I Love You’.
Jim was diagnosed with myeloma in 2007 and passed away in 2014. In 2015, his final recording ‘Age Against The Machine’ was released.
As well as being one of Australia’s rock giants, Jim was also a highly accomplished visual artist who created beautiful and evocative water colour paintings. Almost five years on from Jim’s passing in June 2014, FAD Gallery in Melbourne’s Chinatown is proud and honoured to be hosting a public exhibition and sale of some of the rocker’s best artworks.
The exhibition, which runs for four weeks from Friday 10 May, has been made possible with the assistance of Jim’s wife Karin.
Jim Keays The Boy From Stars exhibition starts 10 May and runs through to 8 June at the FAD Gallery 14 Corrs Lane, Melbourne.
