At Manifest Creative Research Gallery,
ideas for exhibitions are almost an intellectual art form on their own.
The little “neighborhood gallery for the world” in East Walnut Hills has
a history of dreaming up surprising themes.
Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center’s latest exhibition is the work of Travis Townsend in The Love Boat (abandoned), which is presented in conjunction with Out of the Gray, a group showing of works made using graphite.

Let’s waste another five or six minutes of my life and see if we can do something about it.” That’s just not nice. Or this outburst during a recent episode: “What’s that on your head? Oh, it’s just some extra stupid that could n’t fit inside of your head.
