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.

Artist's Biography

Off The Easel features The Magnificent Seven, seven artists who have one salient thing in common: we all either take classes at Zoll Studio in Timonium, teach classes at Zoll Studio or have studios at Zoll Studio. As professionals we further our education in different ways and we paint different subjects. No matter what your requirements are, one of us can fill the bill. So please join us for OFF THE EASEL to see what we’re working on now.
