Visiting AX during COVID-19

Due to rising case counts, the province moves to a new phase of COVID-19 protections as of September 22, 2021. Masks are mandatory, and all people aged 12 and up are required to show their record of immunization or medical exemption certificate and a government issued identification to enter the building, whether you’re checking out the latest exhibition or coming for a bite to eat at Knocks Café.
Knocks and AX will be sharing these verification duties – during regular gallery hours when there is someone at the AX desk, we will greet you and check for proof of vaccination. Otherwise, Knocks Cafe staff will be checking for proof of vaccination when you enter.
We want to take a moment to acknowledge that none of this is easy for anyone, and we ask for your patience and kindness as we navigate these new rules together.

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.
