Call for Entries

Feminist Art in the Trump Era


Due to the difficulties created by the pandemic, we will likely delay our exhibition until later in the Summer or early Autumn.
Although we've received  a wealth of submissions for the show, we know that some have had difficulties getting it all together.
So, with more time now, we’ve extended the deadline for entries until May 15.

Axle Contemporary seeks artwork by New Mexico based artists for inclusion in a group exhibition of small work in our mobile artspace.

 

Works must be relevant to the theme: Feminist Art in the Trump Era.

 

This summer marks one hundred years since the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granted women the right to vote.
