Welcome! Come on inside....
The Drawing Room (tDR) is an art studio and gallery currently located at 780 Valencia Street - our temporary home where we are host to large exhibitions based around open calls to local artists. In hopes to strengthen and connect the local artist community, the Drawing Room fosters a space to host exhibitions, events, and a place for dialogue and exploration.
Our calls for art are currently centered around topics that are relevant to all and tying us all together. Currently we are preparing for the HIGH SCHOOL ART SHOW - an open call to all San Francisco based high school students that will open May 21st and run through July 9th. This show follows our annual WOMEN RISING exhibition which opened March 12, 2022 and showcased the works of over 200 local women artists, musicians and performers. This space at 780 Valencia Street is perfect for hosting large shows with lots of types of art and we look forward to sharing this incredible collection of artists and makers most current works.
We are partners with with SFUSD to create a "learning space" internship program with high school 11/12th graders from various high schools in San Francisco, currently Mission and Academy high schools. This program aims to give students and introduction and solid footing in the creative path after high school in relation to the arts, entrepreneurship and arts administration.
In addition to this partnership, tDR is also now currently fiscally sponsored by Intersection for the Arts. This sponsorship now allows tDR to act as a 501c3 gaining more opportunities for fundraising and support. Patrons of the arts can now donate and sponsor tDR with a tax-free donation HERE.
We look forward to seeing you and connecting with you!
We are currently closed as we transition our exhibitions, but will resume normal hours March 12th from 11-7pm.
