It is recommended that all artwork will be priced under $3,000. Admission to the Fair is free.
echo: Art Fair will showcase a broad scope of fine art disciplines, including painting, photography, sculpture, print, works on paper, video and combined-media. echo: Art Fair will commence with a VIP Reception, which will be capped at 100 people, who will have the ability to pre-purchase (but not remove) artwork, on July 8th, 2011. RSVP here. On July 9th, the echo: Art Fair will run from 9:30am until 5:30pm. Art handling/shipping will be available on site, for those interested in that service. The after-echo Party, also to be held in the Terminal, will be shortly after the ending of the Fair.

The Buffalo Expat Network, the Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo, HandsOn Greater Buffalo and Hallwalls have come together to create echo: Art Fair. The mission of echo is to provide a platform for independent artists and artists from galleries to showcase their work in one location, while, at the same time, highlighting the fine art community abundant throughout Buffalo and the region.
The Fair will be marketed to audiences in Buffalo, Toronto, Rochester, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and New York City and feature performance art, live music, and concessions provided by local vendors.
