At Axle, all our programs have always been free for everyone, and during half of our programming year (installation art, performance art, and special projects) we offer nothing for sale at all.


Becoming a member of Axle supports our non-commercial projects and demonstrates your commitment to our mission of presenting widespread and diverse contemporary arts from New Mexico for New Mexico in New Mexico.


Your membership includes:

  • Free admission to all Axle contemporary exhibitions (along with everyone else because they are all free)

  • Reciprocal admission to all International Mobile Gallery Association members worldwide

  • 50% discount on free ticket purchases for all our non-ticketed events (best for supporters who aren’t good at math)

  • Invitations to our private previews (we’ve never had any)

  • Free admission to Axle for your guests (including well-behaved dogs and ponies)

  • Private viewings in our gallery (if no one else shows up while you are there)

  • Access to our “listings” page of arts opportunities in New Mexico (which anyone can access anyway)

  • Free short-term pet-sitting and childcare while you shop at Farmer’s Market (if we’re parked across the street)

  • Pre-arranged docent tours of gallery exhibitions (no appointment necessary)


Membership fees are 100% tax-deductible (yes, really!).


Want a free tote bag as a membership premium?  Well, we don’t have one for you. This membership drive promises to allow you to “keep that blank space blank” by offering no additional objects to accumulate among your possessions. We won’t even send you a little card for your wallet!
