Manifest Gallery currently has three individual shows in itsï¿½three separate galleries â€” Arthurï¿½Brum, Ivan Fortushniak and Billy Renkl. The outstanding one of the bunch â€” a marvel, really â€” is Renkl's Plan for aï¿½Gardenï¿½show ofï¿½recent works. These fabulous collages have been painstakinglyï¿½constructed (resurrected, in a way) fromï¿½such sourceï¿½material as old books and maps.
The artist, based in Tennessee,ï¿½hasï¿½built new imagery, andï¿½new 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 atï¿½ 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 closedï¿½this Friday and Saturday,ï¿½Dec. 31ï¿½andï¿½Jan. 1.
