Prepare for significant wind damage. - ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous. - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant - Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles. - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several fences and roadway signs blown over. - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access routes impassable. - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent in areas with above ground lines. * STORM SURGE - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 1-3 feet above ground somewhere within surge prone areas - Window of concern: Tuesday afternoon until early Wednesday morning - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the previous assessment. - PLAN: Plan for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground. - PREPARE: Complete preparations for storm surge flooding, especially in low-lying vulnerable areas, before conditions become unsafe. - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for your area. - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low lying spots, or in areas farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore. - Sections of near shore roads and parking lots become overspread with surge water.

Riverhead, NY - December 23, 2015 - East Quogue’s Johnathan Pearlman constructs sculptures from found objects – lost and collected. Old shoes and wooden wheels, wire and glue are some of the materials Pearlman works with. “I could just as easily be a chef working with leftovers,” Pearlman said.
 
Pearlman makes what he calls “amusements” and thinks of himself as much a humorist as a sculptor. Yet, his work is very sculptural in many ways following the classic forms of shape and balance and proportion. He’s making things he “sees” rather than knows.
 
An exhibit of Pearlman’s sculpture and photography by Steven Schreiber will run from January 19 through February 20, 2016 at Suffolk County Community College’s Lyceum Gallery in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center on the Eastern Campus in Riverhead.  A reception will be held on Thursday, January 28 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.
 
Pearlman has shown extensively throughout the East End since first showing his work at the AES Gallery on Long Island City in 2011, and has had four solo exhibitions and been part of many group shows. He has won several awards in juried and invitational exhibits, including three Best in Showsince 2011  at Riverhead’s The East End Arts Gallery. Pearlman’s work is also represented in many private collections.
 
Steven Schreiber - Dead Lakes, 12 x 18 inches.

Calverton’s Steven Schreiber began photographing nature in 2002.  His personal approach to visual textures and colors are the signature of his photographic creations.  Using a unique processing technique he developed, he is able to bring an unusual and spectacular perspective to the trees and landscape he focuses on in this stunning series.  Shrouded in a vail of mystery Steven has captured a sense of awe for the ancient Cypress and Tupalow trees from deep in the Dead Lakes Recreation Area in Florida as well as other areas in the Unites States including: Alaska, New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
 
Mr. Schreiber has exhibited his work at The East End Arts Council, The Alex Ferrone Gallery, Ashawagh Hall, Guild Hall (Honorable Mention, 2014 Members Exhibit, Juror: Robert Storr), The Remsenburg Academy (2015 Award Winners Invitational Exhibit), The Southampton Cultural Center, The Karen Mannix Contemporary Gallery, The South Street Gallery, and The Lyceum Gallery.  Chosen out of 730 entrees Mr. Schreiber’s work was featured in The 4th Annual National East End Arts Exhibition, The Figure.  Mr. Schreiber is a member of The East End Arts Council, The East End Photographers Group, The American Society of Media Photographers, The Southampton Artists Association, Good Ground Artists, and Guild Hall.  Mr. Schreiber is a 2014 honors graduate in Photographic Imaging from Suffolk County Community College.
