Visiting AX during COVID-19

We’re so pleased to be able to open our doors, albeit in a new way. AX and Knocks Café have collaborated to help keep staff and patrons of the gallery and café physically distant during the pandemic, and still allow you to enjoy our current exhibition, Stitch Riff

Special thanks to the artists featured in the AX Gallery for giving permission for food to be served alongside the artwork.


A hub for arts and culture

AX is a charitable organization that offers multi-disciplinary arts and culture programming, and 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 exhibits, art and craft classes, and live performances
  • Offer artists and the public fresh and innovative experiences from near and far

Our building is located in the heart of Sussex, New Brunswick and consists of a licensed restaurant called Knocks Café, an outdoor patio, a professional, climate-controlled and secure gallery, and artists’ and ceramics studios.
