Where art and culture come to life.

Welcome to

AX, the Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex

12 Maple Avenue, Sussex, New Brunswick

AX welcomes between 2000-3000 visitors to our arts and culture centre each month. We host visitors from our hometown of Sussex and all across the world. 

A hub for Arts and Culture.

AX is a charitable organization that offers multi-disciplinary arts and culture programming. Our mission is to promote and support arts and culture to enhance creativity and the quality of life in the greater Sussex region.

We aim to:

  • Connect art, artists, and the public
  • Present dynamic exhibitions, art classes, and live music and literary performances
  • Offer artists and the public fresh and innovative experiences from near and far
  • Provide public outreach to underserved members of our community and advocate for the delivery of accessible arts education

Our Building

is located in the heart of Sussex, New Brunswick and includes Knocks Cafe (a licensed restaurant), an outdoor patio, a professional, climate-controlled and secure gallery, a ceramics centre, artists’ studios for rent, and a newly renovated workshop space.

Storm Policy

Weekdays: if school is closed in Anglophone School District South, the AX gallery and office is closed for the day, and events and workshops are cancelled/postponed.

Afternoon and evening events, and weekends: in the event of inclement weather (current or incoming), we will assess on a case-by-case basis and provide information through our telephone voicemail message (506) 433-8351, here on our website, and our Facebook page.
