Gallery at Patriot Place hosts Sharon artist
Sharon artist Shana Sood brings her unique brand of visual storytelling to the Artist’s Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place in Foxboro through Dec. 15. Artists are curated for gallery inclusion by members of the Foxborough Art Association. With a fusion of styles depicting her first 25 years in India and her last 15 years as a wife, mother and resident of the United States, Sood says, “I want my art to be a window into the soul of my life both here and in India, as well as the lives of rural Indian women and of the natural beauty all around us. My art tells the story of my journey, and the story of people and places and their nuances, and what moves me in the moment. One day I may take a cue from my history and paint an ethnic Indian woman’s portrait reflecting my culture; on another day I might paint a beautiful New England landscape. At the core, art is a window into the soul.” The Artist’s Studio is adjacent to Gillette Stadium and Showcase Cinemas. Gallery hours are Friday, Dec. 13, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 14, from 1 to 9 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 15 from noon to 6 p.m., with a “Meet the Artist” opportunity all day Saturday and Sunday.
