May the force be with you, Brisbanites — the best time of year is here. Yes, May is upon us, which means a new Star Wars film courtesy of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and plenty of Star Wars celebrations for May 4th. At Netherworld, it also means a dedicated Star Wars art exhibition.

It's called Art2-D2: A Star Wars Art Show, so first up, credit where credit's due — that's possibly the best name for a Star Wars exhibition in this or any galaxy. It launches on May 3, as the Valley venue gears up for a Star Wars-filled weekend. Think Star Wars pinball and arcade machines, themed food at the Hellmouth Diner and plenty of other shenanigans.

In total, 22 artists will be unveiling their creative odes to George Lucas' space opera, and everything from Jedis to Gungans will likely get a look in. See artistic talents that burn brighter than a lightsaber and knock back drinks like you're in a cantina. What else could you want?
