NYC – The Art of Star Wars Exhibition


Artist John Cassaday appears at the Metropolis Gallery on Friday, November 13th from 6:00 to 10:00 PM to open an exhibition of his original art from Marvel’s Star Wars series.

Press Release:

While the much-anticipated Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, won’t arrive in theaters until December 18, The Force in all its legendary glory will descend on Manhattan on Friday, November 13. That’s the day Metropolis Gallery, the first New York gallery dedicated to comic art, opens its new Star Wars: The Art of John Cassaday exhibit.

“We couldn’t think of a better time to unleash this amazing art than just before the new highly anticipated movie premieres,” says curator Rob Pistella.

“This comic art makes one harken back to 1977 when the original movie first opened.”

The exhibit will feature the work of Cassaday, the acclaimed artist behind Marvel’s new hit Star Wars comic book series, plus other famed Star Wars illustrators as well as original vintage toys, comics and limited edition prints.

John Cassaday will attend the Friday night opening (6-10 pm), which is open to the public. Signed copies of Cassaday’s Star Wars #1 comic will be available for purchase.

A life size R2-D2 and Boba Fett will circulate among the opening night crowd along with possible guests from a galaxy far, far away.

“Come, and feel like a kid again!” invites COO and curator Vincent Zurzolo.

“We’re thrilled to contribute to the Star Wars film’s opening excitement by presenting this breathtaking array of Star Wars art for display and sale.”

Opening weekend continues on Saturday and Sunday, November 14-15 from noon-5pm. Thereafter, the exhibit is open Tuesday-Friday, 11am-5pm through December 23. The exhibit/sale is a joint venture between Metropolis Gallery and Albert Moy Original Art of New York. The art will go on sale simultaneously at Metropolis Gallery, on its website,, and on eBay, which is promoting the event. With prices ranging from $30-$10,000, collectors can expect to find treasures at every level.

Metropolis Gallery is the creation of Metropolis Collectibles, the world’s largest vintage comic collectibles dealer. Together with its online auction house,,  it has an evolving inventory of more than 150,000 collectibles and holds five Guinness World Records.
