LA Weekly's Description
Opened in 2006 by Tom Jancar and his partner Richard Kuhlenschmidt, this Chinatown gallery is among the least pretentious in the city. Jancar himself is typically at the front desk, and he'll make it a point to hand you an image list when you walk in. Express interest in an exhibition and he'll engage you wholeheartedly, telling you quirky backstories about the artist or pulling out art books for you to page through. His enthusiasm is contagious, and his knowledge is unparalleled.
In 1980 Tom Jancar and his partner Richard Kuhlenschmidt opened an art gallery in the basement of the historic Los Altos apartment building. This gallery would come to be recognized as one of the seminal institutions in the development of Los Angeles art culture. During the period of their partnership, Jancar / Kuhlenschmidt Gallery exhibited the work of artists including Richard Prince, Louise Lawler, David Askevold, Christopher Williams, William Leavitt and David Amico among others.
Inaugurated in October 2006, the Jancar Gallery opened on the top floor of a 1929 art deco building on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles and was located there until the late summer of 2008.
Jancar Gallery has now relocated to a larger gallery space in Chinatown at 961 Chung King Road, Los Angeles
