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 the Golden Gate district of North Oakland, our two buildings boast about 12,000 square feet.  Our 2D building houses private studios, benches, and lockers and focuses on 2D art making (printmaking, letterpress, etching, screen printing).  Our 3D building (The Institute of Fabrefaction) houses 3 private studios, and common areas and focuses on 3D art making (laser cutting, 3D printing, wood shop, ceramic lab, metal shop, sew lab)

Our Gallery features contemporary artworks in a variety of media.
