ArtWorks Center retail space open at 300 N Main St Austin
Tue-Fri 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sat 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Share. Learn. Support.

Comprised of three floors, the Austin ArtWorks Center serves as Austin Area Arts headquarters. Here, we work to carry out a three-fold mission: to showcase local arts, to provide arts enrichment to children and adults, and to foster a community of artists and art lovers. The county’s only public clay studio is housed in the center's lower level. The main floor features a retail space offering hand-made creations from over 100 artists, many with local ties. The second floor galleries offer gallery shows for professional and emerging artists. The upper level is also home to a classroom, office space, and a lounge with an incomparable view of downtown Austin.

Because we like to share, we've made the center available to rent. The second floor is ideal for board meetings, book clubs, company parties, and more.

The ArtWorks Center operations are supported by the Hormel Foundation through the City of Austin Quality of Life grant in 2018.
