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 shown include John Alexander, Jennifer Bartlett, Mary Ellen Bartley, Adam Bartos, Gustavo Bonevardi, Vija Celmins, Götz Diergarten, Christopher French, Robert Harms, Sue Heatley, Christopher Hewat, Sharon Horvath, Bryan Hunt, Robert Jakob, Mel Kendrick, Laurie Lambrecht, Rex Lau, Hector Leonardi, Michael Light, Kathryn Lynch, Diane Mayo, Aya Miyatake, Adrian Nivola, Jean Pagliuso, Pat Pickett, Dan Rizzie, Alexis Rockman, Clifford Ross, Toni Ross, Donald Sultan, John Torreano and Fiona Waterstreet.

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 (1923-2013), Antonio Asis (1932-2019), Jane Freilicher (1924-2014), Vincent Longo (1923-2017), Sheridan Lord (1926-1994), Dorothy Ruddick (1925-2010), Saul Steinberg (1914-1999), Jane Wilson (1924-2015), and Jack Youngerman (1926-2020).

The gallery's co-founders each bring extensive experience to their collaboration. Emily began her gallery career in New York after receiving a BA in art history from Vassar College. Before launching the The Drawing Room with Victoria, she worked as a gallery director and private art advisor. 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.
