THE DRAWING ROOM is a non-profit making organization, initiated in 2000. It is programmed and managed by its co-founders and Directors, Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, who have over twenty years experience of working in the arts. The gallery has no core funding and supports itself through earned income, sponsorship, individual giving and grants from public bodies.
THE DRAWING ROOM attracts a wide audience including art professionals, students and the general public interested in advances in contemporary art and drawing in particular. Our work is disseminated through an In-Conversation programme, Drawing Pad projects, publications and touring exhibitions to regional museums and galleries in the UK. The Drawing Room also collaborates with organisations abroad on exhibitions and projects.
THE DRAWING ROOM is the only London based non-academic partner of The International Centre for Fine Art Research, University of the Arts, a high profile network of museums, galleries and academic institutions in Europe and America.
Please note that the gallery is only open to the public during exhibitions.
