New York City, October 1998

ECHO (New York City's oldest and best-established online service) and its Art Conference are proud to begin its new season of exhibitions at the "Echo Galleries" with a group show entitled "ABSTRACT ECHOIDS."

Following in the tradition of last year's highly successful exhibitions, the show features the work of some of Echo's most prominent and multi-talented members. It will include the abstract paintings, digital works and videos of Philip Galanter, Bill Gibbons, Bruce Lenkei, Henry Lowengard, M.R. Petit, Tony Saunders and Lawrence Quigley.

The ART Conference is about art, and other forms of self-conscious, intentional, rarefied, or mass cultural production. It's for artists, critics, professionals, amateurs, voyeurs, and people who think they don't know anything about it. Sample discussions include: "Your Own Movement, Your Own Manifesto"; "Technology, New Media & The Arts"; "Artists: What are you working on right now?"; and "Why don't I go to galleries anymore?"

It is hosted by Matthew Ehrlich, Bill Gibbons and M.R. Petit.

Please join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday, October 22nd from 6-8 pm at the Echo Communications Offices, 179 Franklin Street, 4th floor New York, NY 10013. For more information: (212) 292-0910 or - end -
