ents. Andrew, born in 2009, lives nearby with the Zuckermans’ son Ethan and his wife, Rachel (she recently became a rabbi, and he directs civic media at MIT). The Zuckermans’ daughter Liz, an attorney, is a law clerk in juvenile court in western Massachusetts, and her wife Ann-Marie is an associate dean at the Putney School in Vermont. The Zuckermans have lived in Northampton, MA, for nearly six years and love its active arts community and the offerings at all the area colleges. In October they went to Croatia and Slo - venia, with day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia. Donna is president of her condo association.

Tom took a cruise with their yacht club in Florida, visited friends in Boulder, CO, and journeyed to Berlin, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. There were also trips to see children and grandchildren in California and Connecticut; they are proud of all of them all. Grandson Ashton has appeared on Broadway and performed in another production in Durham, SC, and Boston, MA. His sister Whitney is performing in a play about bullying that is being presented in middle schools. Carole Walter Maeder says she and Zack Murphy continued supporting the

medical profession this past year: Carole suffered three cracked ribs in a hit-and- run car accident in Minnesota, and Zack, who has the autoimmune disease CIDP, followed the treatment schedule recom- mended by the Mayo Clinic but his con- dition took a turn for the worse, resulting in a 30-day hospital stay in North Caro - lina. Carole and brother Lew went on a Seine River cruise with a stop in Normandy on D-Day. She and Zack traveled to Cali - for nia, visiting San Francisco, Yosemite, and Monterey. Unfortunately, Carole was bitten by a tick and ended up with Lyme disease and Bell’s palsy. She is recovering slowly. Eileen Kirwin Cameron hosted a won- derful luncheon attended by Penny Thompson Jones, Joan Berejik, Diana Ettinger Kloevekorn ’66, and Carole Maeder. Karen Berlan Bleier moved to Florida, where she is active in the Pap Corps for Cancer Research and other organizations in her community. Karen would be happy to host classmates for a visit and can be reached at kbb0513@aol.com. In March Judith Testa was interviewed about her biography of baseball great Sal Maglie, on a local cable-TV station in White Plains. She later attended a panel discussion devoted to 1950s Brooklyn Dodgers star Carl Furillo at the Brooklyn Historical Society, which was presenting an exhibition of Dodgers memorabilia. She returned to the Big Apple in July to give a talk about Maglie to a group of 1950s baseball enthusiasts on Long Is - land. Last fall she was back in Rome, Italy, enjoying the weather, art, food, friends, and music. In October I gave a presentation at the


Workers Compensation Law and Advo - cacy Group conference in San Diego. That event was immediately followed by a trip with Harvey to Edinburgh, Scotland, where our son Steve and his family live.

AT WORK Art for earth's sake B


y age 3, Tina Matkovic Spiro ’64 was pro- tective of her crayons. At 5, drawing red


roses on a white fence, she grasped negative and positive space. At 8, her mastery of per- spective and shading earned her entrée into an art class for adults. “I didn’t think it was strange, working along- side people my parents’ age, having an art tutor, or learning classical technique,” the Long Island native recalls from her home in Kingston, Ja - maica. “I was 16 when I showed my paintings in a juried exhibit.” The early


successes presaged her creative surge at Skidmore, where, she says, “I felt


free to take chances, to be serious, curious, and passionate.” As an undergraduate she learned to weld minimalist forms, “appropriating industrial technique as fine art.” After graduation she earned an MFA at Pratt Institute, where iconic artists Mati Klarwein and Andy Warhol intro- duced her to “the hoopla of the New York art world.” Then the universe shifted. Spiro met an ur -


ban planner who lured her from the hard, cold surfaces of NYC to the glowing verdancy of Jamaica. Her work metamorphosed from angu- lar to sensuous. Immersed in Caribbean culture, she listened to reggae, produced dreamy, some- times psychedelic landscapes, and created the luminous Shekkinah Scrolls—text and images based on the Hebrew alphabet and crafted to promote “the healing of the earth.” Outside the studio, Spiro nurtured children Benjamin ’94 and Yasmin ’96, taught at a vari- ety of institutions, and—identified sometimes as an Ameri can, sometimes as a Caribbean artist— exhibited in Jamaica, Beijing, Miami, New York, Philadel phia, Santo Domingo, and Havana. “We are the custodians of the spectacular


sky and the sea and the gorgeous hills,” she declares. “I want to raise awareness before it all disappears.” —Helen S. Edelman ’74
