In the beginning of the month, Hope Gallery held a show paying tribute to Star Wars called ‘Disturbance in the Force.’ Since then, the gallery has been open to the public with a number of the original art pieces being sold online.

A number of prints and original paintings are still available, such as my personal favorite, the “Impirial Mariachi” by the Beast Brothers.
