Martin Lawrence Galleries presents Douglas Hofmann: "Color and Texture" opening reception
The paintings of Douglas Hofmann are critically acclaimed for their glowing surfaces, detail and softly lighted forms. Hofmann expertly combines his own methods of painting with Old Master techniques, creating a beautiful aura of light and atmosphere that is more often found in great Baroque paintings. He pays meticulous attention to detail and creates harmonious compositions with superbly balanced colors and shapes.
Hofmann’s works have been exhibited in numerous group and one-man shows at prestigious galleries and museums, in every major city in U.S.A. and Japan, many of which have sold out completely during their opening nights. He has received numerous awards for his works, including first prize at the Peale Museum in Baltimore, 1970; “Best Paintings in the Traditional Manner” at the Baltimore Museum, 1971, “Best in Show” at the Washington County Museum, Hagerstown, MD, 1972; “Best in Show” at the Center Club in Baltimore, 1973 and 1978. In 1988, he was awarded a Certificate of Merit for his painting The Secret by the Salmagundi Club at its Eleventh Annual Nonmembers Juried Exhibition.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 30.
