Find out more about Drawing Room, what we do, and our relationship with studio provider Tannery Arts.
Tannery Arts is a small, independent charity concerned with supporting the professional development of emerging and established artists through the provision of affordable studios, promoting their practice through opportunities to exhibit work, develop projects, generate partnerships with local authorities, private property owners and social housing organisations as well as engage in learning activities.
Drawing Room remains closed to the public but there's still a lot happening – we're busy preparing for our upcoming Vanessa Baird exhibition and Drawing Biennial 2021 and our Engagement team is working on delivering creative projects to local schools and families throughout lockdown.
While we wait to reopen fully, please continue to check the gallery website, Instagram and other social media feeds to stay connected. We have a wide range of video and audio resources on our website, including in-conversations and artists/curators' talks from our archive, that are freely available to watch and listen to.
Our office hours remain 10am–6pm, Monday–Friday, with staff working remotely, and we will endeavour to answer your enquiries as promptly as possible during this time.
We wish all our visitors and supporters the best of health and look forward to welcoming you to Drawing Room again soon.
