You are invited to the opening of an exhibition by Liam Spencer.

Home and Away. Paintings and drawings of Rossendale and beyond. 

Opening event Saturday 21st April 2018 at 2 pm at the Whitaker, Rossendale.

Ink Drawings – Home

Paintings and ink drawings exploring Liam’s home patch of Rossendale in Lancashire, alongside work from overseas including New York, Nepal and Australia.

Featured is a piece entitled “A Rossendale Compendium”, a large compilation of small ink drawings cataloguing the flora, fauna and landmarks that the artist has “collected” on his travels throughout the borough. It is intended to complement the Whitaker’s typically Victorian collection of natural history. Other drawings have been made as direct responses to the museum’s cabinets of curiosities.

The Whitaker (previously Rossendale Museum & Art Gallery) is set in a beautiful park in Rawtenstall at the centre of the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. It has a great cafe and bar.

Exhibition runs 21st April-15th June 2018. Weds-Sun 9.30-5pm
