Her artwork has been included in numerous exhibitions at national and international venues, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, the Toyohashi Museum of Art & History in Japan and the Royal Scottish Academy in Scotland.
Her current series, “Elusive Memory,” was included at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Photography as part of their Midwest Photographers Project. Orloff has been the recipient of dozens of grants and awards, including corporate sponsorship by Hahnemuhle Paper and the Ohio Arts Council’s 2019 Individual Excellence Award.
