A long time ago, in a gallery far, far away...
Well, a gallery in Armadale. Which is a long way away if you’re driving from the northside, let’s be honest...Punt Rd is a nightmare. We’re getting distracted...
High St’s iconic Silver K Gallery (aka the best low-fi advertisements ever screened on Australian TV) is hosting something pretty special this month: an exclusive Star Wars illustrative exhibition, curated over two years from some of the greatest artists ever assembled by Lucas Films.
Silver K will be showing original canvas works, depicting some of the classic scenes from Star Wars. There are over 150 hand-drawn pieces, commissioned by George Lucas (and now Disney), featuring everyone from Yoda to Boba Fett, not to mention some pretty epic Storm Trooper scenes. The originals are worth a fortune, but most are available as Giclee prints if you want to take something home.
This is one of the largest projects Silver K has ever attempted. And there’s even a secondary exhibition running simultaneously: a beautiful display of superhero artwork (think Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and so on).
Go get your geek on. It’s running until April 2.
Where: Silver K Gallery, 1092 High St Armadale
When: Until April 2, 2018
