Whitaker invitation to meet local artist Liam Spencer

Friday, 4th May 2018

Following the outstanding success of the launch event for his current Whitaker fine art exhibition, acclaimed local artist is offering enthusiasts of his work the opportunity to join him for an exclusive and unique, one-off, intimate evening in the Whitaker Gallery on Friday 18 May.

Places are limited to 50 in number for the event; tickets are free but must be booked in advance via the Whitaker website.

From 6.30pm, guests will be treated to canapes and nibbles, and at 7pm, Liam will walk guests through his current exhibition, ‘Home and Away’, an exploration of Liam’s home patch of Rossendale through a series of paintings, ink drawings and digital art, alongside work inspired by his overseas travels. Liam will discuss his work and his inspiration, and will talk in detail about the pieces in the ‘Home & Away’ exhibition.

Liam Spencer was born in Burnley in 1964 and studied Fine Art at Manchester Polytechnic, graduating in 1986.  Known for his vivid portrayals of urban landscapes, particularly of Manchester, he came to prominence with a solo exhibition at the newly opened Lowry Arts Centre in 2000.  Since then he has exhibited widely, most notably a retrospective at Manchester Art Gallery in 2006, and his paintings have been collected avidly.  In 2005 he was the subject of a 30-minute documentary on the BBC.

In 2008 Liam was asked to produce the artwork for the UEFA cup final at the City of Manchester stadium.  The paintings and drawings were used to produce the cup final identity and were used on the programme, tickets, city centre banners and stadium dressing.

He exhibits regularly in the North West and beyond, and his work can be seen in several public collections, including Manchester City Art Galleries, Salford Museum and Art Gallery, Touchstones Rochdale and Towneley Hall Museum and Art Gallery in Burnley.  Further information can be found at www.liamspencer.co.uk.
