Can you find it in your heart to donate to a Suffolk County Community College student in need?

“Being raised in a single parent household where my father struggled working double overtimes always made it hard for me to stay motivated, determined and focused on what mattered most, my education. With this scholarship, you have not only given me more opportunities for the future, but you have shown me that there are people that are recognizing my accomplishments and hard work that I’ve been putting in. You’ve also inspired me to work even harder going forward.” – Brentwood, NY Suffolk County Community College Future Alumni

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.

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.

Your gift to the Annual Fund will have immediate and ongoing impact.

As a special bonus, you’ll receive a beautiful customized Suffolk fleece jacket if you decide to contribute $100 or more.

Here is what our students receiving support say:

“I am writing to express how grateful I am to have received the Student Hardship Grant. When I had heard that I was selected for this I was more than thrilled to know my financial burdens would be lightened. It is also very helpful to know that there are people out there who care about the success of others when it is hard enough to believe in yourself. I have experienced difficulty during school and I must say that this has helped me in so many ways.” – Resident of Southold, NY

“This foundation has honestly made me more aware of the needs of others and wanting to help those less fortunate than me. Just the other day a homeless lady sitting outside of Taco Bell asked me for spare change to get something to eat. I didn’t have any extra money so I gave her the food I had ordered for myself.”  – Resident of Coram, NY

Suffolk Culinary Students Partner With Community Action Southold Town, Prepare Thanksgiving Dinners for East End Families

Thanksgiving Cooking

 A Thanksgiving Tradition: Suffolk County Community College Culinary students prepare Thanksgiving meals for needy families. 

Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students will prepare about 200 dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry in what has become an annual and happy undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students.

This is the first year Suffolk’s Culinary program has worked with CAST, a not-for-profit that has worked in Southold Town since 1965  to help low-income residents meet basic needs in the areas of nutrition, employment, energy, and education. CAST exists as a safety net for Southold Town families from Laurel to Orient Point, including Fisher’s Island. The majority of CAST’s funding comes from the generosity of the community.

This marks the ninth year Suffolk County Community College students and faculty have happily volunteered their culinary expertise to support the holiday cooking.

The dinner preparation will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center, 20 East Main St., Riverhead, NY 11901. Cooking and packaging the meals will run through to 12 noon.

“We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking and sharing our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for all that we have. Our college and students, faculty and staff enjoy giving back to our community,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

About 40 students and faculty chefs from the college’s culinary program will prepare the meal whose ingredients are provided by CAST —  more than 20 turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables and 20 each of apple and pumpkin pies. And, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!

The Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 614 Third Street, Greenport is working in collaboration with CAST for people who want to gather and eat their hot turkey dinner in fellowship with their neighbors or pick up a meal to take home. The church will distribute meals on Wednesday Nov 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
