Wittenberg gallery focuses on Ohio photographer’s images


The latest work of Ohio photographer Deborah Orloff is on exhibit at Wittenberg University’s Ann Miller Gallery as part of the art department’s 2013-2014 season.

Orloff, whose works have been displayed internationally, uses digital imaging in her photos, layering multiple images. For her latest project, Holzwege, she has combined landscapes and manmade pathways.

“Her work is certainly a welcome and timely metaphor for positive change, new beginnings and the road ahead,” said Dan McInnis, Assistant Professor of Art and Director of the Ann Miller Gallery.

Holzwege is German for wood path, the type that meanders through the woods and ends abruptly, according to Orloff’s website. She said the images are meant to be ethereal and optimistic, conveying the sense of wonder that exists when we open ourselves up to new possibilities.

The exhibit is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Sept. 20, and is free and open to the public.

The gallery will have two more exhibits this fall, followed by three others in 2014. Each will showcase a different form of art.

Future shows include graphic design by Molly Morin, Sept. 30 through Oct. 25, with a lecture/reception on Oct. 7; photography by Dan McInnis, Nov. 4 through Dec. 6, lecture/reception on Nov. 11; ceramics by Ted Neal, Jan. 13 through Feb. 14, lecture/reception to be announced; painting by Laura Lloyd, Feb. 24 through March 28, lecture/reception to be announced; senior student thesis exhibition, April 12 through May 16, reception April 12.
