“Trailscapes” Photo Exhibit At Mercer County Library

“ROSEDALE LAKE AT MERCER MEADOWS”: This photograph by Susan Jacobsen is featured in “Trailscapes: The Beauty of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail,” on view at the Mercer County Library Branch Headquarters in Lawrenceville through the end of January. An artist reception is Sunday, January 12, 2 to 4 p.m.

The beauty and tranquility of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail (LHT) as captured by Ewing Township photographer Susan Jacobsen is now on display at the Mercer County Library Branch Headquarters throughout January. An artist reception will be held on Sunday, January 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the library, located at 2751 Brunswick Pike, Lawrenceville.

“The photographs capture the LHT in different seasons and at different times of day. I love the play of light on the trail,” said Jacobsen. “I want others to see the trail in its many moods and to enjoy it as much as I do.”

Jacobsen’s photographs have been on display at a number of local galleries. Her exhibition, “Trailscapes: The Beauty of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail,” is the first public show of photographs of the LHT.

“We were delighted when a friend of Susan’s suggested that we collaborate with the photographer to mount a show of her works,” said LHT Co-President Eleanor Horne. “We jumped at the chance. We consider this the first of many exhibitions of photographs, paintings, and drawings by artists who enjoy the multipurpose trail that connects Lawrence and Hopewell Townships.”

“We hope that Susan’s many fans, photographers, and LHT enthusiasts will attend the artist reception on January 12. The reception is open to the public, but we ask that our guests RSVP at www.lhtrail.org,” said LHT Co-President Becky Taylor. “It will be a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.”
