We've posted on a number of Star Wars-inspired art exhibits recently and the latest is coming to our friends Down Under...
The Art of Star Wars- An Artistic tour through the Intergalactic world of Star Wars. Opening November 26th at the Silver K Gallery
The Art of Star Wars will be the largest exhibition ever presented in Australia. The exhibition has taken over two years to put together and opens Saturday November 26th at the Silver K Gallery, 1092 High St. Armadale, Victoria, Australia.
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (PRWEB) November 12, 2011 - Star Wars - The Exhibition - Lucas Films has commissioned some of the finest artists and illustrators to recreate those classic scenes and moments that made Star Wars such an internationally acclaimed success. Many of the pieces are hand signed by the artists and a special highlight is a collection of pieces from Ralph McQuarrie, famed artist and illustrator who designed many of the Star Wars characters including Darth Vader and Chewbacca.
In many ways Star Wars kicked off the Pop Culture Phenomenon. Due to its overwhelming success Hollywood adapted to this new ethos of movie making by writing more action packed, special effects movies. Without Star Wars you wouldn’t have Avatar.
Star Wars is the third highest grossing film series in history, behind only Harry Potter and the James Bond Films. As of 2008 it had earned $4.41 billion at the box office. From the first movie’s release on May 25, 1977 to the final film released in 2005, Silver K will have the all your favourite moments on display. With over 150 pieces in the exhibition including such celebrated characters as Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Darth Vader, C-3PO and many, many more it will be an exhibition not to miss.
The show will be an intergalactic journey through the creative world of Star Wars.
The Art of Star Wars opens November 26th.
