Established in early 2009, Art in a Box, is a project of The Compound Gallery in Oakland, CA.  Art in a Box operates on the model of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) or wine subscription service.   Art in a Box offers amazing original works of art instead of vegetables or wine.


Subscribers can choose how often to receive boxes (every month, every other month, quarterly, etc.) Subscribers receive a new work of fine art by a different local artist in each box.

Subscribers can indicate a preference in mediums, but not the artist or piece.  All artwork is contained in an 11” x 17” x 3” box along with the artist’s bio. Subscriptions are $40/month for pick up only, and $50/month which includes shipping.


Our featured artists work in a variety of mediums (ceramic, printmaking, painting, collage, digital prints, etc.) and most of them live and work in Oakland or San Francisco.
