Axis Gallery Membership Application Guidelines



HISTORY OF THE GALLERY


Axis Gallery is an artist-run space. This cooperative has been together for over 25 years building a reputation for exhibiting challenging contemporary artwork. Artist members are equal partners and support the gallery through sales of artwork, contribution of labor and monthly dues. The gallery is moving from its present location on 19th Street to the Verge Center for the Arts at 7th and S Street. The current location on 19th Street will close at the end of April and open at the Verge Center in June.  The increased space at the new location allows for an ongoing display of members work as well as a space for solo or invitational exhibitions.
