Echo Eggebrecht (born 1977, Bangor, Maine) is a painter living and working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Brooklyn, New York.[1]


Eggebrecht received her BFA in 2000 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, her MFA at Hunter College in 2006 and also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME. Her artist residencies have included the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha, NE and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. She is represented by Horton Gallery, New York.[2]

She has held solo exhibitions at Horton Gallery, New York; Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, New York; Ter Caemer Meert Contemporary, Kortijk, Belgium; Sixtyseven, New York and Sixspace in Los Angeles as well as group exhibitions at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; ICA; Nicole Klagsburn; and White Box in New York City; Groeflin Maag Gallery in Basel, Switzerland, Poets on Painters at the Ulrich Museum and the Flinn Gallery at the Greenwich library.[3]

In a New York Times review of Eggebrecht's solo show at Gallery Sixtyseven, Roberta Smith wrote that Eggebrecht her art "favors empty landscapes, whose roiled grass is meticulously rendered and dotted with wry contradictions and bits of Americana."[4] Another reviewer, John Haber, feels that Eggebrecht's paintings tell detailed, if disturbing, stories.[5] Much of her art is small-scale and she favors a faux-naive or surreal style.[6]

Eggebrecht has worked as a painting instructor at Tyler School of Art, Temple University and is presently a full-time, tenure track assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University.[7]
