Echo Art Fair to host preview exhibition in New York City

In an effort to generate buzz for the Echo Art Fair planned for May 13-15 at OSC Manufacturing & Equipment Services, fair organizers will mount a pop-up exhibition on March 24-26 at the Manhattan event space Highline Loft.

The show, organized by Echo in collaboration with Buffalo-based outfits Body of Trade and Commerce Gallery, Indigo Art and Benjaman Gallery Group, will feature a range of artwork in various media by what a release called "established and emerging, nationally recognized, contemporary artists."

“Buffalo is booming, and the arts is a primary driver of this. The city’s affordability, the proximity to New York City and Toronto, our beautiful historic architecture, and the incredible history in the fine arts in Buffalo creates a true hotbed of activity," Echo founder E. Frits Abell said in a statement. "We want to expose more New Yorkers to this, and not in a ‘we’re trying to be an outer borough’ kind of way."

An opening reception is planned for 6 to 10 p.m. March 24 in the space at 508 W. 26th St. The exhibition will be on view from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 25 and 26.
