Axle Contemporary is a mobile art gallery in a retrofitted step van, an innovative vehicle for arts distribution. The aim of Axle is to bring diverse artwork to diverse audiences. When Axle parks and opens its doors, you can't help but step in and actively participate in a dialogue about the art that is on display. Axel is expanding the definitions of art and its dissemination in an effort to reveal our community to itself.
Jerry Wellman's work as a carny, Indian Trader, minister, private investigator, teacher, ceramic tile designer, author, artist, videographer and curator coalesced as co-founder of Axle Contemporary. Exploring and sharing an expanded view of art is central to his production as an artist.
