Emily Goldstein and Victoria Munroe opened The Drawing Room gallery in East Hampton, New York in 2004, providing a venue to the East End community for exhibitions of postwar and contemporary painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and installations. The gallery also shows drawings from its inventory of 18th and 19th century European works on paper in the fields of Beaux Arts architecture, garden design, engineering, natural history and the decorative arts.


With a program of ten annual exhibitions, The Drawing Room presents significant bodies of work by artists for whom the East End has been a source of inspiration or refuge, and periodically juxtaposes contemporary work with related historical drawings. Gallery artists include John Alexander, Stephen Antonakos, Alice Aycock, Jennifer Bartlett, Caio Fonseca, Robert Harms, Christopher Hewat, Christine Hiebert, Bryan Hunt, Mel Kendrick, Laurie Lambrecht, Rex Lau, Diane Mayo, Jean Pagliuso, Clifford Ross, Toni Ross, Alan Shields (1944-2005), Donald Sultan, Jane Wilson, Timothy Woodman, Jack Youngerman. The Drawing Room also represents the estate of the Sardinian born sculptor and longtime East Hampton resident, Costantino Nivola (1911-1988) and the jewelry of his late wife Ruth Guggenheim Nivola (1917-2008).
