AX offers an average of six exhibitions a year and strives to pay artists fair compensation for the right to exhibit their work. We include artist fees based on national standards in all grant applications so these fees can be paid to artists whenever possible. AX is also dedicated to exhibiting children’s art and student work created in local-area schools and through our own programming. 

AX’s exhibitions are selected by a rotating panel of respected artists and art educators knowledgeable in the discipline involved. The selected juries base their decisions on the artist’s statement and images submitted as part of exhibition proposals.
