The largest Star Wars art exhibition ever presented in Australia

To celebrate the release of the hugely anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Silver K Gallery is proudly presenting "The Art of Star Wars and Superheroes", the biggest collection of Star Wars art ever presented in Australia.

This exclusive collection of over 150 artworks is one of the largest projects Silver K Gallery has undertaken and will take visitors on a unique journey through the life and times of the whole Star Wars saga.

Many of the displayed works were commissioned by Lucas Films (now owned by Disney) and passionately created by some of the world's finest artists and illustrators.

The collection recaptures many of those classic scenes and moments which have made Star Wars such an internationally acclaimed success and lovingly pays tribute to the all-time favourite Star Wars characters, including Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers and many, many more.

Included in the collection is Star Wars artwork from the feature films, including Original trilogy (IV A New Hope (1977) V The Empire Strikes Back (1980) VI Return of the Jedi (1983)), Prequel trilogy: (I The Phantom Menace (1999) II Attack of the Clones (2002) III Revenge of the Sith (2005)) and Sequel trilogy: (VII The Force Awakens (2015)), Star Wars: The Clone Wars and interpretive art.

All the art on display was first created as a one-off original and then reproduced as a limited edition Giclee print on canvas or paper.

Complementing the extraordinary Star Wars showcase is a beautiful collection of Superheroes artwork by internationally acclaimed artists such as Alex Ross and Jim Lee.

This display includes impressive portraits of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Joker and many more!

Plus no Superheroes collection would be complete without a nod to the great Stan Lee, creator of Spiderman and all the much loved Marvel characters. A wonderful collection of artwork hand signed by the master himself is also on display!

The art in this exhibition is truly captivating and a must for Star Wars fans or lovers of art - it is a show not to be missed!

It is one of the largest projects staged by the Silver K Gallery and one of the very best exhibitions the dedicated team have presented.

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 16th December 2017 and runs till Sunday 8th April 2018. Admission is priced $10 for adults & $5 for children, which includes an exhibition catalogue.
