Using a medium-format camera, Saville makes photographs of urban and rural twilight landscapes capturing the atmospheric quality of light fading to darkness.
Saville often captures images neon-lit New York City nightspots during hours when they are mysteriously devoid of human occupancy.
In her Spirit series, Herting isolates young cheerleaders in the foreground, and replaces the backgrounds with decorative patterns, creating a contrast between movement and activity and the static grid of the pattern.
In her "Spirit 300" a lone, jumping cheerleader is juxtaposed in front of a repetitive wallpaper pattern. For Seligman, the result is a simultaneous appreciation of the cheerleader as an athlete and a criticism of the cheerleader's lack of individuality.
Kreisher uses an antique pinhole camera with digital processes to combine photographic techniques with post-photographic interventions. Her sometimes eerie diptychs contrast lightness and darkness and are often torn, sewn, stapled and collaged.
An artists' reception and gallery talk with Apfelbaum, Herting, Kreisher and McDaniel will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Mandeville Gallery is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
