If you’ve noticed an increase in the amount of Star Wars talk in the past few days, don’t blame J.J. Abrams. Well, actually, the fact that he’s promoting that *other* franchise right now does have something to do with it. Mainly, though, the Force has been strong because May 4th is fast approaching.
Unofficially, May 4 is known as Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth Be With You”) making it the perfect time for all kinds of places to plan Star Wars related events. Disney is doing a bunch of things, 30th anniversary screenings of Return of the Jedi are on deck, and one southern California art gallery is joining in the fun.
Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra is hosting an exhibit called A Saga in the Stars: A Tribute to a Galaxy Far, Far Away. It features the work of several dozen artists in all mediums making art based on Star Wars. After the jump, check out a small selection from the show and find out how to see more.
A SAGA IN THE STARS: A TRIBUTE TO A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY opens from 7-10 p.m. May 4 at 210 East Main St., Alhambra CA. It remains on display through May 26 and more gallery info (like gallery hours) can be found at gallerynucleus.com.
