Axle Contemporary--call for proposals: BROADSIDES and INSTALLATION ART--winter/spring 2023-2024


  • Our BROADSIDES series are artist designed projects wheatpasted on the exterior of the mobile artspace.

  • Our Installation Art series uses the interior of the space for projects. These are viewed through the back and visitors do not enter the space.

If you have an idea, now is the time to share it with us, please share it with us!

We hope to see work that engages the available space as a cohesive design. Artists can use the van for a continuous print or images can be cut out after they are printed and placed in sections as the artist indicates. Both sides need to be used. Using the back and/or front is optional. Windows and lights need to be left unpasted to keep Axle street legal. The finalist will be provided a $100 honorarium and deliver a print-ready file to Axle for printing and installation. Our printer prints on roll paper in color. The paper is 40" wide and strips can be ganged together to create larger sections.

These projects are generally made to be seen from the exterior of the gallery through a sheet of glass or screen in the back doorway.  Installation Art should make use of the space inside to hold one work of art that uses the entire space. This is not an opportunity for an exhibition of paintings or drawings. These exhibitions are accompanied by a $100 honorarium to help defray artist expenses.

This Call for Proposals is open to New Mexicans: artists, curators, scientists, and thinkers of all kinds.

To be considered for this project, please send images of past work and a sketch, mock-up, or description of the proposed piece to with "PROPOSAL" in the subject line. Deadline for proposals: October 15, 2023

Railyard Art Project

Community Artists, Designers and Innovators:

The Railyard Art Committee (RAC) invites both individuals and creative teams to propose visual and performing art projects that are vital, lively and experimental for temporary installation within the Railyard Park + Plaza.

The Railyard Park + Plaza was designed as a Cohesive Urban Art Environment and is a work of art in itself.  RAC encourages a continuation of the collaborative spirit that remains at it’s core.  Joint efforts across disciplines — artists, designers, scientists, historians, hydrologists, and many more — will be welcomed interactions with the original design.

All applications for installations, artworks and performances of a temporary nature that comply with the usage policies of the Railyard Park + Plaza are welcome. A limited number of honoraria, up to $500, are available in 2014 for exemplary projects. Ongoing.

Artists are selected by a jury of professionals from diverse artistic disciplines based solely on the quality of that year’s applicants’ presentations from all disciplines. However, in any given year, the park may choose to stipulate (or limit) the disciplines from which it accepts applications, based on compatibility with current programming objectives and needs. 
Selected artists stay in an historic, Pueblo-style furnished residential facility for four weeks during the period from September 1 through mid-December 2022. No application fee is required and no stipend is provided.   March Deadline


Santa Fe Community Gallery

Artist Participation

The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission, in a concerted effort to expand services to the local arts community, welcomes artists and artisans of all media to participate in the exhibits and programming of the Community Gallery. The Community Gallery features themed exhibitions that run for two to three month intervals and display the full breadth and depth of the art produced by local artists and artisans in Santa Fe and New Mexico. Themed exhibitions ensure that both contemporary and traditional work in all media are shown, creating more varied, interesting and vital exhibits. In order for an artist to be considered for participation in exhibitions, the Gallery must have a portfolio of that artist’s work in the artist archive.
