Hwang Gallery was formally established on April 25, 2014. Located in Flushing, Queens, New York, Hwang Gallery is situated in the heart of downtown Flushing, a major hub for Asian communities.

Our gallery is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization (NYS approved, pending federal approval) that seeks to promote artists and foster intellectual exchanges between artists and art lovers. We aspire to serve as a platform that introduces Asian artists to the Western world, and Western artists to Asian domains. Our gallery focuses on solo exhibitions and academic seminars that address subjects of art and music. Our hope is to inspire and encourage the growth of contemporary artistic communities around the world through our select choice of exhibitions. While our core group of artists currently consists of Asian and Asian-American artists, we are looking to expand our roster to include artists from all around the world. As a non-profit organization, we seek to raise our funds not through fund-raising parties, but through art fairs that help our artists gain more international exposure. We are different from other non-profit organizations in that we form long-term commitments to promote our represented artists. Our relationship with our artists is thus one of intimate partnership, one informed by both familiarity and trust. 

As an emerging force in the world’s art scene, Hwang Gallery is highly acclaimed within Asian art circles. Our mission as a non-profit organization is devoted not to profit, but to the cultivation of a strong artistic milieu. In addition to our pursuit of artistic greatness, we also have a continuous goal to promote ourselves as a leading platform for the showcasing of talents within international art communities.

Our gallery focuses on solo exhibitions as well as academic seminars and events that bridge the domains of academia with the refined enjoyment of art. Our hope is to cultivate artistic communities around the world and encourage conversations between artists and aesthetes of different nations. The main feature of our gallery is our insistence on maintaining a high level of artistic sensibility and intellect. Our focus, unlike other galleries, is on the artists and the academic importance of their works. All submitted works have been approved by a professional committee of juries. We are confident in their authoritative judgment to help establish the professional standards of our gallery.
