Interdisciplinary Art Studios, Art Facilities, Community Print Shop, and Art Gallery
About Compound Studios
The COMPOUND Gallery & Studios was established in 2008 by two artists with a love for art and community. We were voted Best Art Hang Out 2012 and Best Art Complex 2015 by the East Bay Express!
Located in Emeryville, CA, our light filled building houses private studios and facilities in: printmaking, letterpress, etching, screen printing, laser cutting, 3D printing, wood shop, ceramic lab, sew lab, lounge, kitchen, parking, and huge common space. Please see our equipment page for a list of all equipment available 24/7 to our artists. Our studios are real workspaces for professional and emerging artists and we consider our robust facilities a school without the "school". Our diverse art community is unparalleled and we are a safe inclusive environment for everyone.
The Print Shop:
Located in the same building as our gallery, the Print Shop specializes in letterpress printing and boasts a large collection of movable wood type. We also have an etching press, and screen printing equipment. Artists who are members can have 24/7 access to the print shop.
Our Gallery features contemporary artworks in a variety of media. The building also is the home to our Art Shop, our Artcade, the Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery, and the Hi-Fructose Micro Mega Store!
