Frerichs' installation consists of 20-plus graphite drawings of icebergs on 24"x36" antique drafting vellum from the Eberl Iron Works Inc., Buffalo. The drawings are suspended from the 30 foot ceiling by airline cable, hung in an undulating curtain.

Concurrent with the echo Art Fair, Frerichs' artwork is also in a group exhibition "Echoing Echo - Works from the Gerald Mead Collection" at the Buffalo Art Harbor, 1002 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo. The exhibition will run from May 6 to 31, with the opening reception on Friday, May 6 from 7 to 10 p.m.

Frerichs has received numerous awards including a 2015 Fredonia President’s award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, two Fulbright awards to Germany, a Netherlands-America Foundation Cultural Grant, a Constance Saltonstall Foundation Grant for Printmaking and a Scandinavian-America Foundation Fellowship to Sweden. Frerichs’ drawings, prints, artist books, and installations have been widely exhibited nationally and internationally. His artwork is included in international and national public and private collections.

The echo Art Fair, a juried fine art exposition, connects experienced collectors and first-time buyers with emerging and established local, regional and international artists in a centralized and creative environment. It provides fine art enthusiasts — at all levels — an opportunity to learn more about collecting and/or experiencing art. Echo Art Fair showcases a broad scope of fine art disciplines ̶ including painting, photography, sculpture, print, works on paper, video and mixed media, and performance art ̶ from artists all over the world.
