Our June exhibit features multi-media artwork by Sandhya Paladugu.  Her beautiful and exquisitely detailed pieces will be on display in our Gallery through June 28th.


ARTIST RECEPTION ~ Saturday, June 15th ~ 12:00-4:00pm

Meet our June artist, Sandhya Paladugu, at her opening reception on Saturday, June 15th from 12:00 – 4:00 pm in our Gallery.  In addition to the framed pieces that are on display in the Gallery, Sandhya will be bringing additional painted items including bottles, eggs and small seeds!


Artist statement: 

My name is Sandhya and I immigrated in 1992 to Windsor, CT, during which I studied to receive my masters at UConn in civil engineering. After finishing my studies, I traveled around the States, including Texas, Illinois, and Minnesota. However, my love for the New England seasons brought me back to Connecticut and I have loved being a resident of Farmington over the past two decades.  While working as a software engineer at Aetna, I discovered a new passion and hobby during the COVID. I became very interested in acrylic canvas art and miniature/jewelry art.  From last year I expanded my art to include painting on egg shells ( Pysanky) and also into painting on small seeds.

‘Annapurna Creations’ is dedicated to my maternal grandmother and after the Hindu Goddess Annapurna ( goddess of nourishment). My grandmother’s name translates to “full of food”, signifying her desire to ensure everyone that came across her path was taken care of and had the proper necessities.  Food is considered sacred in Hinduism, and prayers are offered before consuming it.  Annadanam, the donation of food, is highly praised in Hinduism.  I am planning to contribute some of my proceedings to charity.  In my art, I hope to translate the message of ‘Annapurna’ to others especially because it helped support and raise the majority of my childhood. I hope you enjoy my painting in your home as the values it represents contribute to a major part of my upbringing.  Please contact me at AnnaPurna.Creations.USA@gmail.com if you are interested in any of my art prints.
