There is one good thing about the sun setting at 4:30 p.m. in December: Christmas lights. A hitherto dark and dreary time, dusk becomes a period of holiday cheer as neighborhoods light up to showcase their Christmas trees, red ribbons, and wreaths. Here, we provide some outdoor decoration ideas to make the season even brighter. For more holiday inspiration, head to the Hopewell House Tour and Quilt Show on Sunday, December 18 from 1 – 4 p.m. more

Arts Council of Princeton’s Executive Director Jeff Nathanson with artist Paul Henry Ramirez

Photography by Erica Cardenas

Dining by Design, the Arts Council of Princeton’s signature annual fall gala, was held at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton Township on Saturday, November 12. This year’s theme, Eye Candy, was inspired by the art exhibit Rattle by Paul Henry Ramirez on view in Grounds for Sculpture’s West Gallery. The evening featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live modern dance, Party Boards, a multi-course dinner catered by STARR Events, and an exciting live auction. The choreography and direction of the dancers was the work of Dawn Cargiulo Berman, director of The Pennington Studio for Dance and the Creative Arts. Berman engaged dancers from the Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company and Pilobolus Dance Theater to be a part of the evening. The event proved to be a major success, raising funds for the Arts Council of Princeton’s many community programs including their scholarship fund, which benefits local students.

Under a Tree Ring by Emanuela Duca

Learn the design inspirations behind the rings in this upcoming exhibit in Lambertville, NJ. 

By Sarah Emily Gilbert

Rings are conversation pieces. Some tell the story of a wedding engagement or a family heirloom, while others tell of a person’s passions, heritage, or sense of style. The pieces in the “Nothing But Rings” exhibit at the Diana Vincent Jewelry Gallery in Lambertville tell a story of design excellence. The exhibition showcases rings created by visionary jewelry designers from Canada to California. Their stunning creations will be on display and available for purchase at the Diana Vincent Contemporary Fine Jewelry Gallery located at 12 North Union Street in Lambertville, New Jersey until December 9.  more

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”  — George Eliot

By Ellen Gilbert 

Reader advisory:  This article will not provide the last word in what to wear, cook, or how to decorate your house this fall.  It. turns out that there are many, many opinions about what is au courant for every aspect of our lives (all year round, actually).  This may be a disappointment for those needing guidance, but free spirits may consider this conclusion a boon. more

Princeton artist, Carole Jury will be displaying her work at BoConcepts Princeton.

By Sarah Emily Gilbert

Carole Jury’s paintings are like sophisticated Rorschach tests. They can only be defined by the subject’s perceptions of her strokes.

“A painting needs to be made one’s own,” Jury explains. “It’s a kind of secret space where everyone can find one’s own personal refuge. Through painting, I feel anything is possible. The spectator can imagine anything and everything he wants. My reliefs and colors allow for countless interpretations. Then, the spectator will have made my painting his own.” more
