Oct 26 Spotlight on Hetal Mistry
Hetal’s keen eye for detail and love of nature’s abstraction has culminated in a unique style using jewel tones. Pigments have a life of their own when they interact with each other and form the surrealistic, vibrant backgrounds of her work. From these abstract frameworks she fleshes out her diverse subject matter using various media.
Hetal is an accomplished artist in Princeton, New Jersey. She has had the opportunity to create her renditions of some of the historical sites in Princeton including The Miller Chapel. Her solo exhibits at Erdman Art Gallery at Princeton Theological Seminary and Lambertville have been well received by the media. Hetal has had the opportunity to exhibit at the Artexpo in New York and internationally
Hetal’s prayer is “that by capturing a ripple in the time one may realize that the world around us is the real masterpiece.”

Nov 23 Spotlight on Carole Jury
Artist, Carole Jury is both a photographer and an abstract painter and she combines the two medium of expression in her process, starting from photography and then transposing it to painting to create her series with poetic names such as Dark sea or La Vie en Rose.
Her signature resides in her broad textured strokes, her ability to capture shadows and lights and her eye for color with canvases from vibrant reds to calming blues, subtle nuances of whites to powerful blacks. Working mainly in oils but also in acrylics, Carole Jury likes to play with materials to express herself: her paintings can be either made on canvas, wood or aluminum, incorporating leather or fabrics.
Carole Jury statement: “A painting needs to be made one’s own. It’s a kind of secret space where everyone can find one’s own personal refuge. Through painting, I feel anything is possible…The viewer can imagine anything and everything he wants. My reliefs and colors allow for countless interpretations.Then, the viewer will have made my painting his own.”
