Founded in 2004 by Emily Goldstein and Victoria Munroe, The Drawing Room in East Hampton presents exhibitions of contemporary and 20th-century painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. Highlighting the rich legacy of Eastern Long Island as an important center for art making, the gallery's installations range from intimate solo shows to more expansive surveys and salon exhibitions.

Contemporary artists include John Alexander, Jennifer Bartlett, Mary Ellen Bartley, Adam Bartos, Christopher French, Robert Harms, Sue Heatley, Christopher Hewat, Bryan Hunt, Sharon Horvath, Robert Jakob, Mel Kendrick, Laurie Lambrecht, Rex Lau, Vincent Longo, Diane Mayo, Adrian Nivola, Jean Pagliuso, Pat Pickett, Dan Rizzie, Alexis Rockman, Clifford Ross, Toni Ross, Donald Sultan and Jack Youngerman. The Argentine painter Antonio Asis and the Indian miniaturist, Raja Ram Sharma, add international breath to the gallery's roster of living artists.

The Drawing Room also represents the estate of Sardinian born sculptor and longtime East Hampton resident Costantino Nivola (1911-1988), and presents work from the estates of Stephen Antonakos (1923-12013) and Jane Wilson (1924-2015).

The co-founders each bring over 30 years of curatorial experience to their collaboration. After graduating from Vassar College, Emily continued her art history studies in New York while working in a gallery specializing in 20th century art. Before The Drawing Room was established, she spent several years as a gallery director and art advisor to private collectors. Victoria is a graduate of Radcliffe, where she majored in old master drawings and worked in the Drawings Department of The Fogg Art Museum. From 1982 to 2013 she directed her own galleries in New York City and Boston.

Emily and Victoria embrace the synergies in the following endeavors.
