Oct 7, 2016 – 6 pm – 10 pm
Manhattan’s Metropolis Gallery will be opening its new show, “Greg Hildebrandt: A Retrospective,” on Friday, October 7, adding another item to every New York Comic Con attendee’s can’t-miss list. 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, the artist will attend the opening reception, to be held Friday from 6-10 pm.
“I did not choose art. Art chose me,” says Hildebrandt. “This retrospective is about my never-ending passion for creating art. Creating, for me, is the exploration of other worlds both in and out of my imagination.” This exhibit will showcase upwards of 50 paintings for viewing and sale, including some never before available.
Hildebrandt’s work continues to rise in value, with key pieces selling for as much as $150,000 each. Join duCret Instructor Mark Romanoski, who is currently working with Greg at the event!
