‘Legacy’ – 45th anniversary Star Trek art exhibition

Celebrating 45 years of Star Trek, Generation Pop art gallery in Manchester city centre will be hosting an exhibition of the official Star Trek fine art collection.

Fans from all over the country will be attending the invitation-only launch event on the 8th of September in costume with a number of Star Trek artists also in attendance. The exhibition will be open to the public from the 9th of September.

The launch event is 45 years to the day that the first episode featuring Kirk, Spock and the rest of the crew hit the TV screens back in 1966.

Artwork being flown over from Los Angeles and New York will include illustrative pieces from Ryan Church. Ryan created the concept artwork for the latest Star Trek film as well as Geoffrey Mandel who worked on almost all the Star Trek films and TV series. Geoffrey has created a map of the Star Trek Universe, limited to just 45 worldwide especially for the anniversary.

When news of the creation of the fine art collection was announced earlier this year, the story received over 700,000 hits on the Star Trek Facebook page in the first 24 hours alone.
