Richland Co. Public Library in Columbia, SC, Features Works by Doni Jordan

The Main Branch of the Richland County Public Library in downtown Columbia, SC, is presenting doni jordan: tomes, in the Gallery at Main, through Mar. 31, 2014.

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, fiber art 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 inducted into the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) in New York City in 2010.
