The COMPOUND Studios & Gallery was established in 2008. The Compound is an art institution without the institution…an art school, without the school. We were voted Best Art Hang Out 2012 by the East Bay Express! The gallery features a work in a variety of media by some of the best Bay Area artists. We are proud to offer our studio artists an interdisciplinary work environment that goes beyond a physical studio space. Our studios provide a place for community, interaction, and collaboration. Located in the Golden Gate district of North Oakland, our two buildings boast over 12,000 square feet. You can visit the Art in a Box Headquarters, the Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery, the Special Collection & Print Lounge, Artists Gallery (featuring the work of our studio artists), and the new Institute of Fabrefaction.
