North Charleston Arts Festival: National Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition 2018

This year’s North Charleston Arts Festival Sculpture Competition chose Fowler’s work Conductor for display for the 2017 - 2018 exhibit. Located in the same spot as last years piece, Conductor is a tall steel abstract form of geometric planes and lines. The glossy white surface is divided by rusty lines and trails that outline the form and corrode back into the planes. The 12th annual exhibit also shows the works of a dozen other sculptors around the Riverfront Park.

#LOVEaLOCAL: The Return of the Cooper River Kraken

lovealocal1.jpg

Lowcountry Local First, Charleston's favorite non profit is celebrating it's ten year anniversary with an art installation spanning the entire community. Located at local businesses throughout the Charleston area, large three dimensional letters stand adorned with work by local artists.

Jordan along with Danielle Lewis received the letter "O" and wrapped it with a massive foam octopus. The octopus idea is based off of a painting made by Jordan several years ago - "Cooper River Kraken" which depicts the octopus hanging on  a local bridge. The piece was created by building a lightweight armature and securing it to the letter. It took almost 40 cans of expansion foam to bring the octopus to life.

Live5 News featured the story live and on their website. Other artists involved in the project: Nick Jenkins, Bethany Summers, Lydia Campbell, Arianna King Comer, Marcus Amaker, Charlitown Prints, Lowcountry Local First, Fletcher Williams, Kristen Solecki. More information can be found on the Lowcountry Local First website.
