#CoolArt: Metropolis Gallery presents 'Greg Hildebrandt: A Retrospective' Art Exhibition

Metropolis Gallery presents 'Greg Hildebrandt: A Retrospective' on Friday October 7.

This is the first retrospective for Hildebrandt, who with his late brother, Tim, is among the most revered fantasy and science fiction artists of the last fifty years.

Not only will the show include some of their coveted Tolkien paintings that have never been shown before but will showcase upwards of 50 paintings for viewing and sale, some never before available, including works from his 'American Beauties' pin-up series and 'The Dark Side' series, which explores the darker nature of comic book heroes and villains, as well as 'Captain America v Hitler', created this year in honour of Captain America’s 75th anniversary.

Opening reception is on Friday October 7 from 6-10pm EST at Metropolis Gallery, 36 W 37th Street, FL 6 New York, NY 10018 (only a 10-minute walk from New York Comic Con) and Greg will also be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view until December 30.
