Thorpe Feidt is a painter, writer and sometime actor. His long series of paintings, “The Ambiguities,” begun in 1975, continues through the present. His novel, “The Oracular Room,” from which he will be reading, was published last year by Station Hill of Barrytown.
Poet and novelist Patrick Doud will give a reading of both new and old work. Born in 1968 in Syracuse, New York, he grew up in Bernhards Bay, a hamlet on the northern shore of Oneida Lake, and in East Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo. After several years of academic wandering he found his way to Bard College in the Hudson Valley, where he studied literature (and through friends and teachers was introduced to Thorpe Feidt’s incredible serial paintings). Books of poetry published so far are Girding the Ghost, The Man in Green, and Hickory Bardolino Poems. Books of fiction published so far are two American fantasies, The Hunt for the Eye of Ogin and The Mornith War. He lives with his wife Heather and their two sons.
