Intersect Fund client Janis Blayne-Paul just got a new outlet through which to exhibit her unique, stone art.
The Brodsky Gallery at Princeton’s Chauncy Conference Center will display Paul’s work through March 31st; visitors can meet Blayne-Paul at the gallery during an opening event from 4 to 8 p.m. next Thursday, Feb. 21st.
On rough stones, Blayne-Paul etches a number of designs that reflect her customers’ interests, hobbies, or religious beliefs. Some feature yogic images like the “ohm” symbol; others depict Hindu deities or Hebrew good-luck charms. One of Blayne-Paul’s most popular stones features a lithe runner mid-stride.
Some customers have embedded the stones into kitchen backsplashes; others have used them as stepping-stones in gardens. One used a version of the “runner” stone to decorate the runners’ supply store she owns.
