Emily Allchurch, Albert Square, Manchester (after Valette), 2015. Collection of Manchester Art Gallery ? Emily Allchurch

Congratulations to Emily Allchurch on her newly-completed commission for Manchester Art Gallery. (Emily was a British Computer Society-featured artist of the month in 2013) This latest work references a painting from the Gallery’s collection by French Impressionist Adolphe Valette, who lived and taught in Manchester, influencing a generation of artists in the North, including LS Lowry. Albert Square, Manchester (after Valette), seen here, was crowd-funded through the Art Fund’s programme Art Happens. Typically of Emily the composition features many subtle details of the goings-on in this city as well as incorporating suggestions submitted to the artist via twitter. See the exhibition in Manchester 13 March – 7 June, or later in Nottingham
