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!

The  Campus:
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.

The Gallery:
Our Gallery features contemporary artworks in a variety of media.  The building also is the home to our Art Shop, our Artcade, and the Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery.
