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.

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.
