Liz Rywelski's site-specific installation titled, Untitled (Performative Retail Environment), at the second floor entrance of Echo Art Fair. The fair is on September 6, 7&8, at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library’s Downtown Central Library, a mid-century masterpiece located in the heart of Buffalo’s central core, and will feature more than 100 artists, and a dozen temporary site-specific installations in and around the building.

The fair commences on the morning of Friday, September 6 with its signature VIP event - an exclusive tour of two important private collections, as well as a private tour of the Burchfield Penney’s current exhibits. That evening, collectors are offered an early buying opportunity at the VIP preview party from 6 to 8 p.m. Following the VIP party everyone is invited to Coup d'état, a dance party infused with visual arts, presented in partnership with Only Comrades.

The fair itself will take place Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There is a $5 admission charge on Saturday, and no admission charge on Sunday. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Buffalo and Erie County Public Libraries.

On Saturday several informational seminars will be offered, such as "Collecting Art: 101 & 102" and a behind-the-scenes offering designed for area artists titled "How to Take Your Fine Art Career to the Next Level", presented in collaboration with Arts Services Initiative. The feature event will be a Q&A discussion between Paddy Johnson, Chief Editor of New York City-based blog, ArtFCity, and Janne Sirén, the new Director of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
