Local Trumansburg writers read from their works while you enjoy beer, wine, cocktails, and cupcakes. Readers include Kate Frazer, David Wren, Laura Reid, and Amelia Sauter. An official event of the Spring Writes Literary Festival.
Kate Frazer is a freelance journalist, non-fiction essayist and poet living in Trumansburg, NY. She studied writing at Allegheny College and has attended Orion Magazine's Wildbranch Writing Workshop and Bread Loaf Orion Environmental Writers’ Conference, where she worked with writers including Janisse Ray and Ross Gay. Kate's journalistic work focuses on environmental and food issues and has appeared in outlets including Nature Conservancy magazine and Hot Potato Press. Her creative work focuses on built and natural environments, experiences growing up in Erie, PA, and the way fragments of nature, memory and abandoned places shape our private lives.
David Wren descended from a loose herd of Texans colonized in 1830. Born in Dallas, his first book, a history of Canton, Texas, was published when he was seventeen. He has been a newspaper reporter and features writer and prefers to direct his focus on his two favorite subjects, history and art. Wren moved to Philadelphia in the late 1980s, where he still retains membership in two of the city’s most venerable literary institutions, the Franklin Inn Club and The Athenaeum of Philadelphia. Since 2013, Wren and his partner of twenty-three years have lived in Trumansburg where they operate Halsey House Bed & Breakfast. Wren is also a trustee of Ulysses Philomathic Library, and writes the Ulysses Town Talk column for The Ithaca Journal. His book "Ardrossan: The Last Great Estate on the Philadelphia Main Line," is due out in November this year from Bauer and Dean Publishers in New York.
Laura Reid is a teacher, entrepreneur, writer, photographer, and life coach. Laura has been published in Life in the Finger Lakes Magazine and Montessori Life. Laura was also a multiple winner and one-time champion at Ithaca’s story-telling competition, Trampoline. Laura is a future surfer, volcano explorer and sea turtle whisperer. You might have heard a rumor that Laura and her family are moving to the Big Island of Hawaii this summer. It’s true.
Amelia Sauter is a humor columnist, cartoonist, and freelance food and drink writer who has written for Edible Finger Lakes magazine and other local publications. She has personal essays in two Seal Press anthologies: "Dear John, I Love Jane," and "Here Come The Brides" and will also have a piece included in the forthcoming "Janeland." Amelia has generated the first 49,459 words of a novel about a gay teenage girl who chases after the girl of her dreams and ends up finding herself instead. Amelia is also co-owner of Felicia’s Hive 45 Restaurant and Bakery in Trumansburg.
A collection of quilted banners by Trumansburg artist Alice Gant will open in April at Felicia’s Hive 45. Cupcakes will be served during the opening reception, 5pm-6:30pm on April 13, in addition to Hive 45’s beer, wine, cocktails, and regular dinner menu.
Alice Gant uses a technique of her own design called “neo-reverse applique.” After preliminary sketches, she draws plans for the banner on a full sheet of black fabric with white chalk, and then cuts away the shapes to reveal patterned pieces of fabric which she has inserted underneath. She also appliques and paints on the top layers of the fabric. Although the pieces are certainly fiber art, they also recall stained glass windows, because of the black lines left behind when cutting away the fabric. Because they are narrative and pictorial, they inhabit a world apart from traditional quilt craft practices. Most pieces take many months to complete.
Along with commissions and smaller works, Gant is working on a long-term project to make banners about influential and interesting individuals, memorializing them in the Hero Banners. Among the heroes that have already been memorialized are St. Herman of Alaska, Mother Goose, Nathaniel Pitt Langford, and Queen Catharine of the Seneca.
The artist lives in Trumansburg, New York with her husband, a parakeet and a lovely garden with birds and squirrels. Her studio is a bright yellow sunny room upstairs in her home, where she works on a vintage and durable Singer sewing machine. She has thousands of fabric swatches and an encyclopedic memory for pattern, so that she can find the perfect pieces for her artwork.
She has been a printmaker, art teacher, mother and sculptor. She grew up in Minnesota and has lived in San Francisco, Seattle, and Anchorage, Alaska.
Photos of artwork are attached. Additional photos of Gant's work can be found at www.gantbanners.com

A collection of colored pencil drawings by Trumansburg artist Jim Kozlowski will open on January 19 at Felicia’s Hive 45 Restaurant and Bakery, 45 East Main Street, Trumansburg NY. Wine and cheese will be served during the opening reception, 5pm-7pm on January 19, in addition to Hive 45’s regular dinner menu.
Kozlowski is best known for founding the Wizard of Clay in Bristol, NY, where he worked full-time as a master potter for 37 years before retiring to Trumansburg in 2014.
"My first love has always been two dimensional work," says Kozlowski. "Since my retirement, I've had the time to get back to my camera, brushes, and colored pencils. In my new studio I started painting acrylics, often using the technique of impasto, thick paint applied with a palette knife. A workshop about drawing with colored pencils gave me a new direction for my expressions. My photos of flowers and plants provide the influence for my drawings."
The show at Felicia's Hive 45 will run through March 2017. An additional artist meet-and-greet will take place near the end of March.
From Upstate New York, Oona Grady (fiddle/viola) and James Gascoyne (guitar/vocals) play and sing North Atlantic dance tunes and folk songs. Steeped in Irish music for as far back as she can remember, Oona spent many years living in Cork, Ireland, where she honed her skills as a fiddle player and Irish music specialist. Upon moving back to her home town of Ithaca, NY, she immersed herself in the local traditional music scene and incorporated old time and Cajun tunes into her repertoire. Not steeped in Irish music, or any traditional music (as far as he can tell), James draws on his eclectic musical background in experimental music, rock, and jazz to create a fresh and exciting approach to dance tune accompaniment. For his vocal repertoire he chooses folk songs that express universal and intangible feelings of love and longing. Now based in Saratoga Springs, NY, Oona and James collaborate as Drank The Gold, bringing new perspectives and innovative arrangements to the music that they love. They will be joined by special guests the Grady Girls for this show.Craic agus ceol (good times and music)! http://drankthegold.weebly.com/
