Gergely painted all of his oils in the 1920’s and 30’s.  He exhibited them in Vienna and Budapest.

Shortly after Gergely died in New York on January 13, 1978, two dozen canvases were discovered rolled up in his closet - oil paintings he had brought with him from Europe and never shown to even his closest friends.

In 1986 and 1987, exhibitions of Tibor Gergely’s paintings and drawings from 1925 to 1938 were seen at Ingber Gallery in New York and Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. 

In 1993, the Belvedere Museum in Vienna included his work in a major exhibition of Hagenbund artists 1900-1938.  In 1997, Kunsthandel H. Schrammel gave Tibor Gergely his first solo exhibition in Vienna.

His paintings and works on paper have also been exhibited in numerous group shows.
