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.

Suffolk County Community College Salute to Excellence Gala

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.

Gallery West Exhibit Examines Relationship Between Textiles and Human Condition

social-fiber-receptionThe first exhibition of the spring semester at the Suffolk County Community College Michael J. Grant Campus’ Gallery West, Social Fabric/Moral Fiberinvestigates the relationship between textile practices and the human condition. The exhibition will be held from February 14 – March 30, 2017, with an opening reception on February 16.
The show’s artists have taken everyday objects and conditions and re-configured them as contemporary indications of our humanity. The very act of using the hand implies an intimate temporal and physical relationship with creation. Whether in the acknowledgment of familial ties, or the understanding of the personal or cultural ties to where we are, the core of our identity is never far from home.

The repetitive act of embroidery, sewing or beading can create moments of reverie where one’s identity and sense of place can be re-imagined in vivid and exciting ways. The exhibiting artists utilize themes derived from domesticity, ideas of homeland and culture with textile-based techniques to create forms of protest. The unique blend of embroidery, paint, beads, and knots alongside revisions of domestic objects unsettle the viewer forcing them to see line, texture and subject matter as a vivid and multi-dimensional engagement.

Exhibiting Artists:

  • Bren Ahearn
  • Kate Anderson
  • Leila Daw
  • Barbara Karyo
  • Joetta Maue
  • Elisabeth Munro-Smith
  • Elaine Reicheck
  • Faith Ringgold
  • Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson
  • Scott Schuldt
  • Sally Shore
  • Zin May Thwin

Suffolk Innovative Theater Program Welcomes Romanian Performers to College Stage

antisocial

Antisocial, a production by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University will be performed at Suffolk County Community College on September 27.


A Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts study abroad program named “one of four outstanding proposals” by SUNY earlier this year, and awarded a SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad Programs will kick off the fall semester by welcoming a Romanian theater group to the college’s Ammerman Campus later this month.

The performance on September 27 at Suffolk’s Shea Theatre on the Selden Campus is produced by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University and will feature a performance of Antisocial.  Antisocial is the story of high school students in Romania who create a secret group on social media. The teachers find out, infiltrate and take action; with the support of some of the students.

Next spring, Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts students will collaborate with students from Lucian Blaga University utilizing the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Model that employs a variety a technological tools (social media, Skype) in a team taught class.  The students will travel to Romania next summer to perform with their Romanian counterparts at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival has grown in importance and prestige since its founding in the early 1990’s and attracts participants from more than 70 countries, has hundreds of scheduled events and in years past has attracted more than a half million spectators during its 10-day run. Attendees include performing arts groups, filmmakers and critics.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students to not only participate in study abroad, but to collaborate and perform with their contemporaries starting from their laptops to such a prestigious international festival,” said Suffolk County Community College Director of Theatre Arts and Academic Chair Charles Wittreich, Jr. ’86

3/16/16 – An Afternoon Performance and Discussion with Janis Astor del Valle

Wednesday, March 16th @ 11:00am in Van Nostrand Theater of the Sagtikos Arts and Sciences Center. 

 

An extremely rare opportunity to experience the pioneering work of the legendary Janis Astor del Valle — followed by a discussion of the role of performance in the Latina/o LGBTQ community.

 

Janis Astor del Valle is a living legend in the world of Solo Performance Art, the Latina/o Theatre, and the LGBTQ Theatre. Her one-person shows have been presented throughout the world and Ms. Astor del Valle has been heralded as one of the most iconic performers of the last 20 years of New York Theatre. Her work has been published in multiple anthologies and she is studied by theatre and performance arts students throughout the world.

 

It is truly an honor to have such an important artist grace the stage of the Van Nostrand Theater and such a rare opportunity to see her perform selections from two of her most popular plays, Transplantations and Becoming Joaquin.

 

Immediately following her performance, Ms. Astor del Valle will sit down with Dr. Jason Ramírez and discuss the evolution of the Latina/o Feminist canon of performance and the history of LGBTQ Theatre in the post-Reagan era.

 

This program is brought to you by a grant from the LATINO AMERICANS: 500 YEARS OF HISTORY Foundation which was awarded to the Michael J. Grant Campus by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
