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
Art 10 Baltimore is a professional group of artists who have painted together for more than 10 years. Each member of Art 10 Baltimore has exhibited and sold work in juried and non-juried shows throughout the United States.
While the work of the group as a whole could be described as expressionistic and evocative, each artist employs a unique blend of color, creativity, and composition.
“Unencumbered” refers to our attempts to tap into our individual artistic sensibility. We try to push beyond what we see in front of us to create a new work of art. As we try to free ourselves from preconceived notions and interpret the world around us -- through color, line and form -- the outcome for each of us is different. As we create a painting, we approach our work Unencumbered.
