About Pump Project

Pump Project Art Complex is a 501(c)3 non-profit, East Austin art space that provides working studios and gallery facilities to emerging and established artists. At Pump Project artists come together to work, experiment and exhibit, actively enriching the community through new ideas, innovative projects and the creative spirit.

Our current home is a bright yellow 1950s warehouse at 7th Street and Shady Lane. The 1,000 square-foot gallery, which doubles as a studio for our live model drawing group, is surrounded by 22 private and shared artist’s studios accommodating over 30 artists and craftspeople. Beginning in 2005 as Shady Tree Studios with a few artists, an old, empty warehouse and a substantial amount of initiative Pump Project has been an example of Austin’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit and continues to grow as an organization.

Many of our members have an active role at Pump Project. To contact our members individually please see our member’s list.


This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the

Texas Comission on the Arts and the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division.
