Free Seminar for Prospective College Students RSVP By 3/1/18

Info Session 2018Supervisor Romaine Announces Free Seminar for Prospective College Students

posted on

Farmingville, NY – On March 8, the Brookhaven Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College will host a free seminar for parents and students who are interested in enrolling in college. Representatives from Suffolk Community College will discuss the college application process, financial aid opportunities, scholarship opportunities and the various programs and services the college offers to students. Much of the information provided can be used toward the overall college application process. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Brookhaven Town Hall, located at 1 Independence Hill in Farmingville.

“Suffolk County Community College offers hundreds of diverse programs,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The College, New York State’s largest community college, provides a high-quality education at an affordable price that can lead students toward a four-year institution. The college also offers a host of grant and scholarship programs, easy transfer between SUNY institutions and a host of clubs and athletic opportunities. I urge students to learn more about all that Suffolk has to offer.”

Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “It is great seeing the Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College continuing to work together to help both students and parents in Brookhaven Town. This seminar will help guide them through the college application process and also make them aware of the many opportunities that are available.”

Councilman Michael Loguercio ’80, who serves as the Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau, said, “The college application process includes many important family decisions, and this program will help educate both parents and children about that decision-making process. I want to thank Suffolk Community College and the Youth Bureau for the great programs and services they provide to Brookhaven’s youth.”

The seminar will last approximately an hour and a half. Each presenter will speak for approximately a half hour, and then take ten to fifteen minutes after their presentations to answer questions.

Participants are asked to register in advance with the Youth Bureau by Thursday, March 1 by calling 631-451-8011.

Southampton’s Dennis Exhibits at Suffolk’s Flecker Gallery

dennis-web

A solo exhibition of new photographs by Jeremy Dennis — an indigenous artist who was raised and continues to live and work on the Shinnecock Native American community in Southampton  — will be featured at Suffolk County Community College’s Flecker Gallery, on the Ammerman Campus from February 8 – March 15, 2018. The exhibition’s opening reception will be on February 8 from 1-3 pm.

 Refreshments will be served.

Dennis’ large-scale photographs presented in the exhibition and catalog offer a fictional narrative that flips the historical script.  Dennis’ work is borne of his experiences of the myriad challenges of contemporary indigenous life.

The images are intended to arrest the viewer and transport the audience into the role of the subjects – unsuspecting, fatally pierced; injured out of nowhere.  This bit of shock is necessary and purposeful. These photographs are both powerful and perfectly suited to our current moment in history, resonating the concerns of Dennis’ Shinnecock heritage and also harmonizing with numerous critiques of patriarchal society, white privilege, and blindness to both.

The exhibition is accompanied by full color catalog.

Please visit our website or contact the gallery directly for directions, to schedule an appointment, or to request a catalog or more information.

Color and Light: Art by Janet Jennings, Anne Raymond, And Phyllis Hammond January 29 – March 3, 2018 at Suffolk

colorlightweb
Color and Light,  an exhibit of paintings by Janet Jennings and Anne Raymond, and sculpture by Phyllis Hammond at Suffolk County Community College’s Lyceum Gallery in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center on the Eastern Campus is a celebration of the progression of daylight on our east end landscape, featuring the work of three artists who express the beauty of light. The exhibit will run from January 29 through March 3, 2018.

Anne Raymond and Janet Jennings, of East Hampton, show us how closely they have studied reflection on water and the changes in atmosphere in the winter sky.  Jennings layers translucent oil glazes on canvas to create luminous horizontal bands of color that carry the import of landscape.  Some appear as abstractions of pure light, while others have a direct reference to a particular place.

Raymond incorporates exuberant calligraphic paint strokes in her oils on canvas expressing the transitory quality of light.  Inferences of landscape, reflections, and atmosphere give way to pure abstraction with her joyful use of color, line, and shape in “all-over” compositions.

Phyllis Hammond, of Springs, creates energetic sculptures that defy their medium: painted aluminum. She bends her curvilinear cut-outs into forms that appear to float upward, propelled by wind or tidal currents.  Hammond paints her sculptures in bright colors with a heat cured powder coating.

Phyllis Hammond is originally from Melrose, MA.  She has been sculpting for over 60 years.  After receiving a BS in Education from Tufts University, Hammond was awarded a trip to Japan, becoming the first woman to study at the Kyoto City College of Fine Arts.  Hammond is a recipient of a 1981 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and a 2016 Pollack Krasner Grant.  Hammond’s sculptures have been featured in 17 solo exhibits and 80 group shows including “On the Edge,” a 2017 outdoor sculpture exhibit at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza New York City.  http://phyllishammond.com/curriculum-vitae/

Anne Raymond has work in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin.  New York City’s Epoch Investment Partners installed nearly 100 of her oil paintings and monotypes in their office space.   Raymond’s work was chosen by the US Department of State’s Art in Embassies Program to be displayed in the U.S Embassy in Cyprus.  Raymond grew up in Dallas and received her BFA from the University of Texas and later continued her studies at S.V.A in New York City. http://www.anneraymond.com/bio.php

Janet Jennings has been creating art on the east end of Long Island since 1981.  A founding member of the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton, Jennings was the lead designer for their permanent exhibit installation.  Jennings has taught at the Parrish Art Museum, Guild Hall and the Art Barge and currently teaches painting from her studio in East Hampton.  Jennings has exhibited her work extensively throughout Long Island’s east end and New York City.  She received her BFA from the University of Dayton and later maintained a studio in New York City and studied at The Art Students League. http://janetjenningsart.com/bio.htm

An artists’ reception will be held on Wednesday, February 21 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.

Gallery hours are:
Monday – Thursday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.,
Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays, (exceptions: closed evenings after 4 p.m. through 1/31 and closed on 2/19), call 631-548-2436 for information regarding hours of operation.

Suffolk Students Next Move: Jobs in Manufacturing

Students with chess sets designed in advanced manufacturing
Students, L to R: George Molina (Central Islip), Alejandro Blanco (Bay Shore), Jake O’Leary (Port Washington), Jesse Villanova (Huntington), Anthony Moloche (Brentwood), Josef Kosic (Commack), Cameron Wigger (Ridge), Nicholas Zelazny (South Setauket), Ryan O’Shea (Hampton Bays), Steven Beder (Islip).
________________________________________

Suffolk County Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center teaches students the required skills to enter our region’s high-skilled manufacturing workforce. Students in Suffolk’s programs learn an array of technologies including computerized machinery, computer software, 3D printers, and ability to design and develop products.

A core course, Advanced Machining Processes, encourages students to experiment to learn the content of the class.

The final project is a “Chess Set Project”. Each student designs a chess set by utilizing a CAD/CAM design software package. After completion of the designs the students use computer programs that enable them to manufacture those pieces on the CNC machines, and manufactures his/her own pieces.

“Suffolk County Community College is committed to the advanced manufacturing sector,” said college President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The jobs are there,” he added, “and we are training people to fill them.” Manufacturers across the U.S. are finding it more and more difficult to attract and retain workers with the right skills to fill available jobs and keep up to speed on factory floors.

None of the students knew how to design, program, or manufacture any of the metal parts before joining Suffolk’s program.
