Bucks County artist Jerry Cable has kindly contributed several of his paintings of the Hopewell train station to the History Project Art Gallery of scenes of historic local places – and especially train stations. His paintings show the station from multiple angles and in different seasons, and he has used two of the resulting images for his annual Christmas card.
Visit Jerry Cable and several other artists at the Hopewell Train Stations: History and Art presentation by Doug Dixon on Wednesday, December 1 at 7 pm at The Hopewell Theater.
The first three works were exhibited at his solo art exhibit at the Hopewell train station in the fall of 2001 – The first public event at the newly restored train station.
“Christmas Sled” also was used for Cable’s 2001 Christmas card: “Glistening red paint and the sound of crunching foot steps end the day as a brand new Christmas sled makes its maiden voyage past the station in Hopewell, New Jersey.”
In 2012, Cable updated his “Stationary Survivor” painting the use for his 2012 Christmas card. In addition to the Christmas wreath, he added a horse and sleigh from the Howell Farm in Lambertville.
