Where Do We Go?
Work by Jeff Madison
September 11th-October 24th, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, September 11th, 5-7pm
Jeff Madison’s digital collages are explorations in storytelling. His work is luminous and retains the qualities of fable, while engaging masterful technique.
“At a glance, my images seem casually unreal. I am always looking for new inspiration and new ways to turn my imagination into a reality. It’s who I am, just as much as a hand or a foot. I take in all of the emotions, colors, shapes, and sounds that surround me in everyday life and put that into my work.
Each image starts with taking many photos, followed by an average of 15 hours in the digital studio, manipulating my images into the stories you can see in front of you. Ultimately, it’s the idea that comes and that can be brought out by just walking down the street. Some ideas are easier than other to bring to life.
Each picture that I create that I create is a journey in itself. Finding the images that I use, adds to the story that I tell. I take great pride in using all of my own images- these stories are created through all of my own work from start to finish.”

“Myth…a traditional story, concerning the early history of
a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon…
typically involving supernatural beings or events. “I Myths”
then, are images that illustrate events or stories of an individual.
Although these images are personal in nature, each viewer will
bring to the images their own thoughts and interpretations.
Who’s to say what story or interpretation is true or correct?
Maybe none, maybe all.” – Billie Jo Peterson–

The Bacchae, directed by Christopher Carter Sanderson and adapted from Euripides by Matthew Gasda, is considered to be Euripides’ greatest tragedy. Author Matthew Gasda updates this classic for the next generation in this world premiere. Gasda’s adaptation integrates the chorus into the plot, and the god is not a distant presence but rather, a character.
“A great script; intense, poetic, bloody, sexy, intellectually provocative and authentic,” states NYC based and Oswego State director Christopher Carter Sanderson, The Bacchae will awaken your appreciation for classic Greek theatre.
