The Principal Manchester to host Buy Art Fair Exhibition with Fine Art Photographer Craig Barker

04 October 2017

To mark its first anniversary, The Principal Hotel Manchester will host an exhibition of work by Manchester photographer Craig Barker, as part of the tenth edition of Buy Art Fair.

The Principal Manchester, formally the Palace Hotel, opened to guests on 1st November 2016. Situated across the road from Manchester’s Oxford Road Station, the listed Gothic Victorian Revival Building with its distinctive clock tower has become an icon of the Manchester skyline.

Showcasing his unique view of Manchester, fine art photographer Craig Barker has captured the urban charm of iconic Mancunian landmarks, combining both elements of dark and light to create vivid landscape imagery. His exhibition will pay homage to both Oxford Road and The Principal Manchester, allowing visitors to experience them in a new and exciting way. For those looking to grow their art collection, Craig’s photography will also be for sale during the event.

The exhibition will be held in The Principal Manchester reception from the 27th – 29th October, viewing times: 9:00am – 9:00pm.
