Could there be a more beautiful site for an upscale art show than a New England harbor in summer?
That’s the question asked by Sue Brown-Gordon, mixed-media painter, jewelry artist and arts educator.
Brown-Gordon is the driving force behind the Stamford Art Festival at Harbor Point, now in its second year. It takes place Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31. And because of support from the developers, both festival admission and “next-door” parking are free.
A while back, the arts organizer was in Coconut Grove, in Miami, when it occurred to her that her home state has similarly beautiful outdoor spots that would be perfect for arts events. Stamford’s Harbor Point, a huge multi-use redevelopment area, “is absolutely stunning … a thriving new area,” she said.
