The Silver K Gallery, located in 1092 High Street, Armadale Victoria is currently hosting a very popular exhibition titled 'The Art of Family Guy and Futurama'. This exhibition will close on December 5, 2010. Featured in the exclusive pop-culture exhibition are a special collection of hand painted artworks which are signed by the creator of Family Guy and co-creator of American Dad Seth McFarlane, as-well as poster design artwork, an inspired collection entitled 'interpretive art' and original artwork and drawings for both popular American animated television series'.

Aside from this exhibition, The Silver K Gallery are specialists in exhibiting and trading rare and celebrated pop-culture photography, be it iconic imagery of The Beatles, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood's acclaimed artworks and Marilyn Monroe, to animation cels, drawings and artworks portraying classic animated Warner Bros characters, iconic Disney characters, legendary Hanna Barbera characters and imagery from modern classics from Pixar and Dreamworks Animation Studios.

Some of the gallery highlights are the unexpected - for example the canvas artworks inspired by the Star Wars feature films. Some of the Star Wars artwork is focused on recreating classic imagery from the feature films, while others are interpretive - such as 'Regrets' by Masey and 'Destiny Awaits.' This extensive collection, which also includes imagery from Clone Wars, is sure to delight Star Wars fans. Another highlight is the animation collection which includes imagery from the animated Beetlejuice television series, the classic Pinky and the Brain, timeless Ren and Stimpy and an extensive range of The Simpsons artwork.
