Liam Spencer Painting from Life: Twenty Years and Counting
9 June – 6 October
This is the largest retrospective of his work to date, but also includes significant new paintings of Salford, Rochdale, Oldham and Saddleworth. Spencer was a key figure in the Manchester art scene of the 1980s and 90s and became well known for his urban panoramas, with their rich treatment of light and colour. Now based in Rossendale, his subject matter extends from the North West to as far afield as New York and Beijing. The exhibition gives an insight into how
Spencer’s work has developed throughout his career, including early studies and experimental paintings, as well as preparatory sketches and photographs for current work. Work will be for sale. In partnership with Touchstones Rochdale.
