Hyatt Centric Center City Philadelphia hotel presents Joe Barker as the next entrant into its “Maker Series”. This exhibition will feature several of Barker’s watercolor paintings of iconic Philly cityscapes from February 1 through February 28. The hotel is inviting art appreciators to its Meet the Maker reception for the artist on Thursday, February 2 from 6 pm to 8 pm where a selection of Barker’s work will be on display, and light bites will be enjoyed.

“It’s a joy to present at the Hyatt Centric, an arm’s reach from Rittenhouse Square. My work is very concentrated in this area; I’ve painted thousands of pieces here, and many of them found their home in businesses and residences here. Philly and I go way back, and this exhibit is an ode to the city and a reminder of that.” – Joe Barker.
