AndrewShire Gallery was established in 1989 to showcase the artwork of Korean artists in the United States. Named after its location on the corner of St. Andrews and Wilshire in midtown Los Angeles, the gallery opened its doors with recognized Korean artist Kim Tschang Yeul. While the original owner, Hyesook Choi, ran the gallery for fourteen years, local and international artists working in a wide range of media were steadily introduced to the L.A. arts community. Some of these artists like Peter Alexander, Michael Davis, Tony Delap, Laddie John Dill and Eric Orr were from an established group. As the new millennium came and went, other artists like Lisa Adams, Martin Durazo, Ruby Osorio, Nam June Paik and Roland Reiss had shown their work at AndrewShire Gallery.
In 2003, under the direction of new owner, Susan Baik, the gallery revitalized its energy and vision. In 2005, May Chung joined Susan Baik as co-owner enabling fresh objectives for the gallery and furthering opportunities for the local community to engage in a public dialog pertaining to contemporary art.
Over the past four years since the gallery changed ownership, it has increasingly dedicated its program to the development and exhibition of established artists and to younger local talent. While continuing its international focus by bringing art of the Asian Pacific Basin, Europe and other countries to greater Los Angeles, AndrewShire Gallery remains dedicated to the exhibition of innovative work by up-and-coming art makers.
