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.
In the next few years we will be moving to a permanent new home in Bermondsey, making it an interesting time to join our board, the management committee. A key part of being a board member is to contribute to the work of the organisation by sharing skills, contacts, experience and new perspectives. We need motivated individuals to help support us to implement our plans for the future.
We are a small but ambitious non-profit organisation that enables artists to make great art, by providing studios, presenting exhibitions and creating opportunities for people of all ages to engage with contemporary drawing in a hands-on way. We also have a shop and a unique, free, open access library, holding one of the largest collections of titles on contemporary drawing in the world.
If you are passionate about the visual arts and believe that it can make a contribution to maintaining and building communities –perhaps you’re an artist, a teacher, work with communities or for a local business – here is your opportunity to play a key role as this dynamic organisation moves into its first permanent home in Bermondsey in 2022.
