ArtUs Co. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports local artists by providing affordable spaces for them to create, share and sell their work with the Austin community.
How we do it.
This spring we will open 9 new studio spaces for artists. ArtUs Co. strives to build a community where artists can affordably create and collaborate.
We are dedicated to featuring artists in our gallery to provide an opportunity for them to share their work with others.
Our shelves are filled with hand-made leather goods, furniture, jewelry, fine art and more from more than 90 local Austin artists! We love helping creatives sell they work with others.
ArtUs Co. started in 2005 as a non-profit organization first known as Shady Tree Studios and later the Pump Project. Our team noticed a lack of affordable artists studio spaces in Austin and we were dedicated to solving the problem. For a decade The Pump Project provided opportunities for over 250 artists and hosted almost 200 exhibitions in a 20,000-square-foot warehouse in East Austin. When increasing real estate pricing began threatening art spaces.
In 2019 we partnered with The Arboretum to create a new creative hot-spot for local artists to sell their work. We started as a pop up shop and formally renamed our organization to Art Us Co. What started as as a temporary shop expanded to a long term store and we have been excited watch our team grow ever since.
In addition to our shop we are planning a grand opening of 9 new and affordable artists studios in 2021!
