Hoffberger Gallery



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.

Current Exhibit

January/February Exhibit

"Photo-Synthesis" work by Norm Dubin


Sunday, January 10, 2-4 PM

Artist Statement

Norm Dubin was reborn as a photographic artist in 2006 when he started exhibiting at fairs and galleries. Much of his work involves post camera digital enhancements and modifications. His recent work combines related photographs in multiple images or collages, overlapping images, or double exposures; Ansel Adams or Aubrey Bodine, he is not. He is, however, something else and he continues to explore the medium to find out exactly what that is. He has exhibited widely in the Baltimore area as well as New York, Delaware, and Michigan. This is a return engagement at the Hoffberger Gallery, as he previously exhibited here in 2011.

Norm lives in Baltimore with his wife, Valerie. In a parallel universe he was a medical researcher.
