Last summer, Art/Place gallery opened up an outpost at the Watermark, a swanky retirement high rise in the north end of Bridgeport, better known locally as 3030 Park.
Not just swanky, the Watermark is beautiful and I hear the care there is excellent. Being inside the building is like being on a cruise ship. I can’t think of a better place to retire to if I didn’t leave Bridgeport.
Now they even have their own art gallery. Can you stand it?
Art/Place is a non-profit artists’ co-op that’s now in downtown Fairfield — the one that used to be at the Southport train station before that unfortunate fire. They have always been a reliable source of art that seemed somehow to have intellectual qualities.
Showing now through June 30 is “Journeys from the Heart” with works by Florence Zolan and Cecilia Moy Fradet.
Anyway, Paul and I took a look at the gallery over the weekend and then got on the waiting list for an upper-floor unit, something with a view of the Sound. Meet me there for tai chi sometime around 2030.
