The most recent addition to The Drawing Room is the Art Gallery, which opened in December 2012.  Curated by Cameron Schmitz, the gallery features bi-monthly exhibits from local, national and international artists.  The Gallery's exhibits include a dynamic mix of both representational and abstract painting, photography and drawing. The Gallery is located in the space adjacent to the café, in the building at 5 Suburban Avenue.. 

The Gallery regularly hosts opening receptions, Artist Talk's, it’s coveted Artists’ Table Dinner, in addition to also being a popular rental space for private parties and gatherings.

The Artist's Talk invites one or more of the exhibiting artists in our current show to talk about their work and inspiration. Taking place in the evening, this event takes on a more casual setting, and as the night progresses the talk becomes more of a dialogue between the Artist and his or her audience. 

The Artist's Table is a collaboration between Fine Art and the art of Cuisine. Two chefs team together to choose one work of art from each exhibiting artist in our current show, and then create a culinary interpretation of that work on the plate. They are inspired by color, shape, texture and concept, in each of their courses, and the result is always stunning. This event is kicked off with a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres hour, after which our guests sit at our farm-style table to dine on several artfully inspired courses.
