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.
July/August: BHC Congregant Stan Weiman, "From Stage Art To Canvas Art"
work by Stan Weiman
When Stan Weiman retired from his lengthy and prolific acting career at Everyman Theater, his creative juices lay dormant for a short time. After some “family intervention,” he reluctantly decided to enroll in a painting class at the Myerberg Senior Center. Previously, his love of art had been relegated to his enjoyment of museums. A whole new world of creativity opened up when he picked up a brush, gazed at the limitless choices of color, and stared at a blank canvas. Today, he spends three afternoon’s a week at the studio and even paints at home. Stan’s love of his newfound artistic talent is a natural link to the passion that fueled his acting career and led him seamlessly from stage to canvas.
