Buy art this month for your pleasure and for a good cause. Two times a year The Drawing Room holds fundraisers. All proceeds from the event will be used to ensure spectacular exhibitions at The Drawing Room for the coming year.

The Drawing Room is a non profit organisation, founded by Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout as the first dedicated public space for contemporary drawing in the UK. The Drawing Room was launched in summer 2002, with two group touring exhibitions, a publication and an artist's residency at The Guardian newspaper.

This month from 6 May - 15 May you can bid on over 200 drawings by contemporary artists. Names include Peter Blake, Michael Craig-Martin, Martin Creed, Ian Davenport, Richard Deacon, Tacita Dean, Brian Griffiths, Paul Noble, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, David Shrigley, Georgina Starr, Mark Wallinger and Alison Wilding. The silent auction ends 8.00 pm 14 May, bids are accepted beginning at 125 GBP and if won can be paid by cash or cheque.

Make your way over to Hackney tomorrow at noon when bidding officially begins.
