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.

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

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
