Manifest Gallery in East Walnut Hills is well known for their exhibitions of the artwork of new, contemporary artists. But they have a separate identity as well, that of book publisher. Robyn Carey-Allgeyer learns more about the Manifest Press from founder Jason Franz.
The Manifest Gallery in East Walnut Hills is more than just a gallery – it features a Drawing Center Studio in Madisonville where open drawing and instruction are available. Manifest founder Jason Franz and one of their artists in residence, Nick Mancini, join Jane Durrell to discuss the center and other happenings of the gallery.
Jason Franz, artist, curator, director and founder of Walnut Hill’s Manifest Gallery, joins our Jane Durrell for a preview of their upcoming 10th anniversary season and to talk about the gallery’s mission and recently expanded exhibit space.
For the first time in its existence, Cincinnati’s Manifest Gallery has engaged an artist-in residence. Painter Tyler Wilkinson has been working with the gallery for some time, so he joins our Jane Durrell in the studio to discuss the experience so far, the type of work he’s been doing, and what he hopes to accomplish before his residency is completed.
