Album Notes
Arthur Mampel resides in Seattle, Washington. He lived on Kauai, Hawaii from l970 to l978, where his first chapbook was published: “Poems; Makai and Mauka” (l977). Since then he was published by International Theological & Philosophical, Library Press and Motecurb Press. His other books include: Antlers In The Treetop/ New and Selected Poems (2000), A Loose Nut Behind The Wheel (l993), Voyages (l988), Snapshots (l984), The Visitors (l983) and Silk Over Wood (l981).One of his poems, Before Winter was used for a recently published musical composition by E.C. Schirmer Music Company. Two of his poems were made into musical compositions by the noted composer, Libby Larsen. Another Seattle composer, Carol Sams, has used seven of Arthur’s poems in musical compositions. The works were performed at the Town Hall in Seattle. On November 20, 2005 another work, "Autumn Transformations" will use several of the Poet's poems in a concert at the Prospect United Church of Christ. In December of 2005 a "Winter Cantata" will also be performed at the Town Hall in Seattle, using several of Mr. Mampel's poems.

Mr. Mampel has given readings at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, the Walker Art Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, St. Ambros University in Iowa, and the Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington. He taught a Seattle high school workshop for six years at Seattle Pacific University and has given several readings and conducted poetry workshops in various churches, camps and schools in the Seattle area.

His poems have been published in numerous literary magazines such as Negro Digest (l968), United Church Herald (l969), A.D. Publications, (1978),Communique Arts and Entertainment (l986), and Pietisten (l987).

A new book of poetry entitled, "Winter Wheat" was published in July of 2005 and Mampel is presently working on a book of Children Poems, entitled, "Poems For Claire."

Charlie Leck

I have been reading the poetry of Arthur Mampel a year shy of forty years. I keep coming back to my collection of his books to read them again and again. Mampel likes to deal in truth - both the kind that fees us up and the kind that humbles us. Mampel is a poet who deserves wider recognition. Charles Leck, Minneapolis, Minnesota

True poets are few and far between----
True poets are few and far between. Many write prose and chop it up to make it look like like poetry. Not Art Mampel. He is a true poet as you will realize once you've listened to the poems in Antler in the Treetops. They range from the humorous to the very touching and are as good as any poetry out there today including W. S. Merwin or any other leading contemporary poet. Give Antlers in the Treetops a try. You'll be glad you did.
