Painting the town


January 08, 1998|By John Dorsey

David Fried, a Baltimore-born painter and graduate of the Maryland Institute, College of Art, frequently centers his work on family members and his native city. In his current show at the Hoffberger Gallery of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, the largest of his oils, called "Looking Back," is a self-portrait that shows him sitting on the steps of a Bolton Hill house.

Other works recall the North Avenue of the 1950s, when Nates and Leon's delicatessen and the Rialto movie theater were fixtures on the scene. His portraits include a group called Family Album, with likenesses of his parents and brothers. The show includes works in oil, watercolor, charcoal and pastel.

The show is at Hoffberger Gallery of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, 7401 Park Heights Ave., through Jan. 25, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays. Call 410-764-1587.
