echo Art Fair announces 2013 exhibitors

echo Art Fair has announced its line-up for this year’s juried fine art exhibition. On September 7 and 8, artists from Buffalo, Rochester, Ithaca (and other upstate NY cities), New York City, Washington (DC), and Toronto will display their creations at Buffalo’s Central Library, within a 25,000 square foot space. “In addition to several returning artists, this year’s fair saw a 43% increase in the number of new submissions,” said E. Frits Abell, echo Art Fair founder“The quality of the submissions was very high and the selection process was highly competitive. We are particularly pleased that several of the site-specific installations directly respond to the Library setting, incorporating books or reading themes into the creation of the works.”

The art fair has been gaining notoriety since it first came onto the scene, prompting over 100 artists to submit their works in 2013. 29 individual artists, 13 galleries and 12 site-specific installations were accepted. To add to the mix, artists from Burchfield Penney Art Center, Albright Knox Art Gallery, University at Buffalo Art Galleries, and Buffalo Arts Studio were called upon to select the twelve temporary site-specific installations of various media. The combination of gallery-style and site-specific installations will, per usual, add a level of intrigue to the show.

According to echo organizers, visitors to this year’s weekend-long event can also expect “tours of private collections, a VIP party, a dance party, the art fair, plenaries/seminars on collecting art, and tours of site-specific installations.”


The air conditioned Central Library will also be a welcome change from previous years when at times not even the fans felt like they were doing anything other than pushing hot air around. The library is centrally located in Downtown Buffalo, and is situated along the Metro Rail route, making it easy to attend for all.
