Housed in the back of a custom retrofitted 1970 aluminum stepvan, Axle Contemporary is a mobile gallery of Contemporary art, exhibiting the work of contemporary artists from throughout the state of New Mexico.  Mobility allows Axle to visit both typical art venues and unusual ones, such as schools, empty lots, restaurants, grocery stores, and city streets.


The  6' x 10' exhibition space features high wood ceilings, exposed beams, and solar-powered lighting


Axle Contemporary was founded in 2010 by artists Matthew Chase-Daniel and Jerry Wellman, as a collaborative work of art, and an innovative vehicle for arts distribution.  It has since grown beyond the confines of the mobile exhibition space, and also includes book publishing, and alternative methods of creation and dissemination of contemporary arts in the public sphere.
