Bridgeport, CT - The Watermark at 3030 Park is pleased to announce that Fairfield artist Carol Cole and Greenwich artist Liana Moonie will have their work featured at ArtPlace Gallery @ The Watermark, from July 6 through August 29. The opening presentation of their exhibit, entitled “Reflections,” will be held on Wednesday, July 11 at 2:30 p.m. The Watermark retirement community is located at 3030 Park Avenue on the Fairfield/Bridgeport town line. Following the artists’ talk and discussions about their work, there will be a reception for all attendees.

Ms. Cole’s exhibit was inspired by her love of nature and focuses on pieces inspired by natural and untouched tree formations.

“My goal is to bring happiness to those who view my art,” said Cole. “I hope that residents and guests of The Watermark will find a piece they connect with and share the joy I felt in its creation.”

Cole has a B.A. from Columbia University School of Fine and Applied Art. Her work has been featured in dozens of shows across Connecticut, New York and Florida, including Earthplace in Westport, Fox Gallery in New York City, and the Pelican Pavilion Art Show in Sarasota, Florida

Ms. Moonie’s exhibit is also inspired by nature and its emotional impact on people. In addition, each piece is accompanied by a Japanese Haiku written by Moonie’s family members.

“In looking at one of the wondrous natural scenes which surround us, I strive to portray the emotional impact of the scene more than the objects themselves,” said Moonie.

Liana Moonie is an award-winning artist whose work has been featured in galleries and museums across the Northeast. Moonie was also the former editor of Beax Arts Magazine and the former director and president of the Greenwich Art Society.

The collaboration between The Watermark at 3030 Park, and ArtPlace, a non-profit, cooperative art gallery celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year, aims to provide Watermark residents, guests of The Watermark, and the public with the opportunity to experience the work of fine artists such as Carol Cole and Liana Moonie.

ArtPlace Gallery @ The Watermark is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call The Watermark at 3030 Park at 203-374-5611.
