Restorative Nature, Paintings and Sculpture by Gina Gilmour, Sept. 5 – Oct. 24 at Suffolk County Community College

Oil Painting

oil on canvas 70 x 70

Restorative Nature is an exhibit of paintings and sculpture by Gina Gilmour ranging from small ceramic sculptures to paintings up to six feet high.

Gilmour depicts transformations using the rhythms and images of nature and personal history. Some works are of plush jungle foliage unfurling an awakening figure, while others show a tiny swimmer enjoying her humble place in a vast rippling sea. Still others use a layering of images: animals, people, and places in patterned memory compositions. “I paint experiences that I am working through, and it often leads me to ongoing painting cycles and to some resolve or restorative place,” Gilmour said.

Gilmour is the recipient of a number of artists’ fellowships that have taken her around the world, including the American Field Service Program in Okayama, Japan; The MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire; The Karolyi Foundation Fellowship in France; The Julia and David White Artists’ Colony Fellowship in Costa Rica; and The William Steeple Davis Foundation Residency in Orient, NY. Gilmour has exhibited her work in various museums and galleries including the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington, DC); The Alternative Museum (New York, NY); and the Ron Feldman Gallery (New York, NY).  Her work is in numerous public collections including The Newark Museum (Newark, NJ); The North Carolina Museum of Art (Raleigh, NC); and the Bechtler Museum of Contemporary Art (Charlotte, NC).  Gilmour received a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, NY.

Restorative Nature will run from Sept. 5 through Oct. 24, 2017 at The Lyceum Gallery, in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center on the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College, Riverhead.  A public reception will be held on Wednesday, Sept.13 from 4 to 6 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.

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

The gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays (exceptions: gallery closes at 5:30 on Wed., 9/20 and 3:30 on Tues., 10/10; gallery closed on Thurs, 9/21 and Sat., 9/30).

5/1/17 In Our Backyard Series

In Our Backyard

The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.

Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.

In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.

The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the CSJHU: (631) 451-4117.

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Suffolk – St. John’s University Create Seamless Pathway from Community College to University

 Watch Event Video

Suffolk County Community College and St. John’s University have entered into a new partnership to ensure that students will be able to transfer seamlessly from Suffolk to St. John’s. The institutions formally announced the agreement at a signing ceremony on March 30 at Suffolk County Community College’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood.
The agreement signed by the colleges’ presidents provides 33 associates-to-bachelor degree programs for students who will be provided an academic pathway to transfer to St. John’s University. St. John’s University will also generously award an annual $17,000 scholarship to students who attain a set academic goal.

“Enhancing access and affordability to higher education is a shared goal of Suffolk County Community College and St. John’s University,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.  “This agreement will further that goal by providing a pathway for Suffolk students to complete their associate degrees at Suffolk and transition to St. John’s University to complete their baccalaureate degrees. The agreement between St. John’s University and Suffolk County Community College will provide students from the region with access to a high-quality, affordable education,” McKay said.

“This mutually beneficial academic agreement supports St. John’s strategic priorities of ensuring student success and expanding community partnerships,” said Conrado “Bobby” Gempesaw, Ph.D., President of St. John’s University.  “Suffolk County Community College is the largest community college in the SUNY system and we look forward to the continued matriculation of students from Suffolk to St. John’s. This partnership will establish a pathway for student success through the completion of their baccalaureate degrees at St. John’s University.”

“This new relationship with St. John’s will create incredible opportunities for Suffolk graduates.  It is a real testament and joy to share with an institution of the caliber of St. John’s University the education of Long Island’s greatest resource,” said Suffolk County Community College Dean of Instruction Dr. Paul Beaudin.

Suffolk County Community College prepares students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Students transition to a variety of baccalaureate programs here on Long Island, throughout New York State and the nation.
