USC Sumter in Sumter, SC, Features Works by Doni Jordan
USC Sumter in Sumter, SC, will present the
exhibit, doni jordan: tomes, featuring works by Columbia,
SC, artist Doni Jordan, on view in the University Gallery located
inside the Anderson Library from Feb. 9 through Apr. 12, 2011.
Trained as a graphic designer, Jordan has long had a passion for symbols, punctuation and typography. Inspired by an art exhibition of concrete poetry by Italian artist Mirella Bentivoglio at The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, she expanded her view of type beyond communication and symbol.
The exhibition, doni jordan: tomes, or heavy books, is an exploration of typography and includes mixed media assemblages using metal and wooden vintage printer's type, type trays and found objects. The exhibit also includes an installation of portable typewriters.
Jordan is a 2001 BFA graduate of the University of South Carolina (USC). She was recently inducted into the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) in New York City and was included in the 2010 Carolina's Got Art Exhibition in Charlotte, NC, a juried group exhibition of North and South Carolina artists sponsored by the Elder Gallery of Charlotte, NC.
