After 20 years of nomadic existence, we finally have a chance to secure a permanent, purpose-built home in Bermondsey, southeast London, opening in 2023. But we need your help to raise the remaining funds vital to getting this important project over the line.
We wish to thank the Board, the Biennial artists for their generous donations to our Drawing Biennial fundraisers our Network members and the following who have given their support for our programme and activities.
Every two years the Drawing Biennial proves to be a highlight in the Drawing Room programme; a critically acclaimed exhibition showcasing drawings from a cross-section of the most interesting artists working today, as well as a fundraiser that provides Drawing Room with vital income for two years of activity.
