Art House Gallery (AHG) was established by Mr. Yiu Hong in 1970, making it the first local private gallery in Malaysia. His son, Leonard Yiu, is currently managing the business.
AHG is practically a “One-Stop-Shop“ for the Arts, since it has three outlets, each with a distinctive style, catering to different clientele with different taste.
The HQ in Wisma Cosway has 4 lots (lot 2.39-2.42, second floor). This gallery specializes strictly in ALL CHINESE art----Chinese ink & colour painting, Chinese antiques, Chinese crafts, Chinese painting materials and art books. Throughout the years, the gallery has held hundreds of solo art exhibitions. Larger group shows were held at other premises like public art galleries (Petronas, Maybank), shopping malls (Lot 10 Isetan, Bangsar Shopping Centre, The Curve, Starhill), and hotels (Shangri-La, The Regent, Hilton KL, Sheraton, Crown Princess, Park Royal).
The second outlet is at lot 3.02 (second floor,The Annexe) in Central Market. Here you find Oil Painting, Acrylic, Watercolour, Batik painting and sculptures from Malaysia, China, Indonesia , India etc.
The third outlet (lot 3.03) is next door to the second, and here houses ethnographic/native/folk/traditional art from Peninsular Malaysia, East Malaysia, Indonesia, Indo-China and China. This unique gallery cum museum also has a NOT FOR SALE section which showcases original artefacts from Sarawak and Sabah. Many visitors have remarked this collection outshines even that of our National Museum! The entrance fee is RM5 per head. A guided tour can be prearranged for larger groups.
