Welcome back to AX

Welcome back to AX

We’re so pleased to reopen our doors, albeit in a new way. Check out the video below, recently created by our summer students, Emily and Shelby (who coincidentally are in the same “friends and family” bubble!) it shows how AX and Knocks Café are collaborating in an effort 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, Gordon Dunphy: Vessels, generously supported by Frank McKenna.

Special thanks to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery for giving permission for food to be served in the gallery 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.
