CLASS OF 2003 Our 10th Reunion is September 27- 29, 2013. Mark your calendars now! Britton F. Inglehart wrote: “I have recently returned to the States after four years abroad in South Korea, where I was teaching ESL/EFL (English as a Second Language & English as a Foreign Language) to South Korean elementary and middle school students. Upon my return to the States I traveled in Vancouver, BC, and took the VIA Rail to Toronto. The train ride was amazing; we went through the Canadian Rockies up to Edmonton and then continued on. Afterwards I spent a month in Toronto getting my CELTA certification. Now I am welcoming spring and busy substitute teaching at a local public school while job searching! I miss all of my fellow VA classmates and hope to see you all soon!” In 2011 Matthew S. Neuman received an MFA at Boston University. He now lives in the Brooklyn area and has a studio in the Bronx. Matt’s interest in making art has led him in many directions, including painting, sculpture, print making, ceramics, and even costuming. His current body of work uses a unique combination of painting and building techniques to craft colorful, geometric paintings that have a strong material and sculptural presence. Since moving to Boston in 2009, Matt has exhibited his work at galleries and museums, including NKG, 808 Gallery, 22

summer 2013

and the Danforth Museum of Art. After finishing his MFA, Matt’s paintings were featured in Alpha Gallery’s annual “New Talent” exhibit recognizing Boston’s best up and coming artists. Matt’s work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe, the Boston Art Review and the Aspen Times. A quote I like: “You can never make what you want.

We got married on 10/6 at my parents’ house in Putney, VT, and are currently living in St Paul, MN. Oddly enough, when I first met his parents, I found out that his dad had played soccer with Mr. Mooney at Yale!
