With the reality and uncertainty of the impacts of Coronavirus, and the resulting public health issues, we would be irresponsible not to take it seriously.  The Gallery owners have chosen to cancel our Last Saturday Art Walks starting with March 28th. 


We will follow the evolving nature of this event to make further adjustments regarding hours and events. Some of the Galleries have made the decision to be open by Appointment Only at this time. Our website is a portal to all the participating Galleries in downtown Johnson City, TX.  Please follow the links to each Gallery for specifics.


We are brainstorming ideas to bring our art to you during these unusual times. 


ART is medicine for the Soul!  We wish you all to make wise decisions and be well.

Inside Echo Gallery located inside the Echo building offers a different twist on traditional art mediums. Pastel paintings are transported to different dimensions with the use of textures, cold wax medium and encaustic.


The artist’s perception of the beauty and mystery of the natural world delivers a varied interpretation of landscapes and cloudscapes to the painted surface.  Your gallery visit is sure to be an experience.

On the corner of Nugent & Main (Hwy 290)

Echo in Johnson City is the culmination of two lives of international travel and design, combined with a passion for art, antiques and everything unusual. 


With a focus on mid-century modern, and hosting the work of over 30 artists, you'll find a visit to this "non-gallery" art gallery fascinating.  Situated on US Hwy 290 along the Texas Wine Trail in the historic Henry Ford showroom, we're in walking distance to several other galleries, restaurants and wine tasting venues.  


Echo is operated by partners Linda Haddock and John Sone.

Susan Kirchman represented Texas artists at Kirchman Gallery in Johnson City since her retirement from Texas A&M University in 2005. In 2019, after 14 years showcasing the work of up to 40 Texas Artists she decided to devote herself full time to her own artwork. Her working studio/gallery is located on the north side of her original building at 213 N Nugent Avenue.


Susan's work has been shown in galleries and museums (including the Getty Center, the Dallas Museum and the Exploratorium) and in private collections nationally and internationally since 1980.  She has published and presented her research in the field of Fine Art and Computer Graphics nationally and internationally.  She holds the rank of Professor Emerita at Texas A&M University College of Architecture.


Feel free to ring the doorbell, call or text if the gallery is locked. Susan may be onsite, even on ‘closed days”, and will be happy to have you visit.

This gallery, located in the historic movie theater, features the fine art of Lee Casbeer. It also serves as a working studio where his mural works are completed on large canvases and can be seen in progress. In the gallery his varied art works include his Longhorns, Travel Edition, Ode to Anatomy, Beneath the Surface, and Wildlife collections, as well as a wide range of other subject matter.


A central Texas native, Lee studied art with the Fredericksburg Art Guild, and later spent five years in Italy developing his skills and selling his work in sidewalk shows. The influence of the Old Masters that he absorbed during this sojourn can be seen in his work, even in his Texas based themes. His work can be found in corporate and private collections around the U.S, Europe, and the Middle East.
