Drawing Room explores ideas around contemporary drawing and makes them visible in the public domain.

As the only public and non-profit gallery in the UK and Europe dedicated to contemporary drawing, Drawing Room provides a unique resource for the promotion of drawing, its practice, theory and methodology.

The programme incorporates a wide range of ideas and media, from the traditional to the experimental, and is informed by contemporary artistic practice. It supports the production of new work and acts as a catalyst to test the parameters of drawing, providing opportunities for artists, writers and curators to produce, examine and research contemporary drawing.

Drawing Room is now located in Bermondsey, south east London, in premises shared with its umbrella organisation, studio organisation Tannery Arts.

Drawing Room was initiated by curators Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout to provide the major European resource for contemporary drawing. It has delivered an ambitious international programme of solo and group exhibitions that have included established, emerging and historical artists. Many of these exhibitions have toured to galleries and museums throughout the UK and beyond.

Since Drawing Rooms inception in 2002 it has been able to deliver an ambitious programme in large part through support from artists. Since our first Drawing Biennial fundraiser in 2003, over 1,000 works have been made especially for Drawing Room, an endorsement of the value that artists place on the organisation.
