Art: Billy Renkl

By Steve Rosen · December 20th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Manifest Gallery currently has three individual shows in its�three separate galleries — Arthur�Brum, Ivan Fortushniak and Billy Renkl. The outstanding one of the bunch — a marvel, really — is Renkl's Plan for a�Garden�show of�recent works. These fabulous collages have been painstakingly�constructed (resurrected, in a way) from�such source�material as old books and maps.

The artist, based in Tennessee,�has�built new imagery, and�new meaning, from the old in a way that makes you realize the ongoing potential for beauty in everything human-made that has ever been discarded or forgotten. The show is up through Jan. 7 at� 2727 East Woodburn Ave. in East Walnut Hills Gallery hours are 2-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. Saturday although the gallery is closed�this Friday and Saturday,�Dec. 31�and�Jan. 1.
