Tegnerforbundet (TF)/The Norwegian Drawing Center is located in the Art District area—Kvadraturen—in central Oslo.

TF´s mission is to show the huge diversity of drawing and illustration art, and to increase the understanding of drawing as an independent artistic expression. TF works with an extended definition of drawing that aims to preserve, but also challenge the traditional line.

The gallery shows 4-5 exhibitions a year, and includes a sales department that provides a vast variety of drawings and illustrations created by the organizations members.  

TF is hosting the Tegnetriennalen/ Drawing Triennial and publish NUMER – a magazine for drawing, illustration and book arts.
