Fans attending Star Wars Celebration are in for treat, especially if you’re looking to admire or purchase some outstanding artwork. Starwars.com has given us a look at what is available at the Star Wars Celebration Art Show, and yes, you can pre-order and pick up while attending the event.
As someone who’s completely happy for those attending, and not jealous at all, there are a ton of incredible prints available to see. Plus, they don’t focus on a singular character, but a wide range of those in the Star Wars universe. From the original trio, Padme’s wardrobe, beautiful backdrops or even an epic showdown featuring Tuskens and Cobb Vanth, there are plenty of wonderful options to choose from.
The Star Wars Celebration Art Show seems like an event all by itself. Such care has gone into crafting these beautiful pieces and each creator shares their own thoughts behind their masterpieces. There truly are some inspirational pieces and I’d love to have many of these hanging on my walls, including a stellar “Reflective Power” by Al Abbazia.
Star Wars Celebration Art Show captures the beauty of a galaxy far, far away
Beyond providing an exceptional message of hope, the Star Wars Celebration Art Show gives fans a nostalgic experience unique to the creator. The adorable Grogu, or Baby Yoda as my son continues to call him, is highlighted in Adrianna Vanderstelt’s “A Friend.” Grogu stares up at R2-D2 while Luke Skywalker stands in the distance with his lightsaber glowing green in the darkness.
She says, “This art is intended to capture that magical moment between Artoo and Grogu at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2. A nostalgic touch in the distance with Luke Skywalker amongst the glittering stars.” This beautiful piece is not the only one that invokes a sense of emotion as other new fan favorites are highlighted in the Star Wars Celebration Art Show.
“One Heart Divided” by Ksenia Zelentsova focuses on the relationships forged in The Bad Batch. Omega is the centerpiece as the members of the team take shape around her. Zelentsova says, “When creating this piece I wanted to focus on the strong emotional bonds that make each of these individual characters a part of one whole. All members of the squad have their own history, and Omega is placed in the heart of things to represent their combined future.”
Are you longing for a sense of hope? You can gaze at “Beacon of Hope” by Adam Schickling where Princess Leia is the hope you’re looking for. As a constant force against the evil patriarchy, Leia stares into your eyes with confident purpose. Other characters are highlighted, but Princess Leia is the reason to feel hope in the face of darkness. As the Death Star looms, starlight peeks over her shoulder and we all rejoice, “Princess Leia, you’re our only hope.”
Schickling shares, “Princess Leia was devoted to the Rebellion’s cause of protecting the galaxy from the Empire. This piece captures the strength of the young princess who, against all odds, formed a friendship with a farm boy, a smuggler, a Wookiee, and a pair of droids to destroy the Death Star and defeat the Empire. She would continue to guide the Rebellion’s continued conflicts against the oppressive Galactic Empire. Her leadership and determination serve as a ‘Beacon of Hope.’”
Each artwork shares a story and each person will feel something special. That’s the beautiful magic of this year’s Star Wars Celebration Art Show. There are so many amazing pieces of art; there’s something for everyone, and quite frankly, I’m certain almost everyone would want all of these in their home to look at each and every day.
