The Hoffberger Gallery is located near the beautiful Hoffberger Chapel at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. The ample physical space can accommodate large and small works of art and offers exhibitors excellent exposure with the many meetings and events that take place at BHC throughout the year.
Established in 1958 by Claire Bornfriend, an artist and congregant of BHC, the Gallery continues to be self-sufficient and is run by a committee of active congregants, some of whom are themselves artists, committed to encouraging a love of art.
The Gallery consistently showcases works of quality in varied media by artists from all over the Mid-Atlantic region, with a special emphasis on Israeli artists during the High Holy Days. Exhibits change every two months, September through June, and offer opening receptions with refreshments. The hours for the Gallery follow BHC building hours. For directions, click here.

Group Artists' Statement
The joy of creating, profound friendships and artistic growth through cross-pollination are the reasons that the nine artists in this group are exhibiting together.
The roots of the group go back more than two decades. When we meet to paint together each week, we review the work being done, make suggestions for color or composition, and help each other solve the problems that develop as a painting goes from idea to final expression.
The theme of this exhibit is “Sunrise, Sunset” as seen in the various interpretations in the centerpiece of the exhibit. In addition to those pieces, each artist has chosen a few pieces that exemplify her interests in creating work in watercolor.
