Drawing Room is a not-for-profit gallery, library, shop and online resource that is dedicated to opening up the world of contemporary drawing to everyone. It is internationally renowned for stimulating debate around the nature and purpose of drawing today. Through free exhibitions, artists’ talks, courses, engagement projects and a unique library it nurtures the production of drawings and promotes understanding of them.
Currently based in Elephant & Castle, Drawing Room has both an international following and meaningful connections within our local community of Southwark.
Drawing Room is at an exciting juncture in its evolution. It is expanding its Engagement Programme and preparing to move into permanent, purpose-built premises in Bermondsey in 2022.
Tannery Arts Ltd is an established non-profit organisation, a unique creative partnership comprising a studio provider - Tannery Arts - and a public gallery - Drawing Room.
