Small Works at Small Prices
by Axel Stohlberg

April 07 -  May 15 2021

Our namesake of the gallery, Axel Stohlberg, is looking to move his inventory of work and is offering major discounts on original works of art.

This show is a mix of collage, paintings and drawings of abstract landscapes. Some are framed but many are merely mounted and matted - ready to be framed. 

Prices range from $3 (!) - $100.

2020 Photography Shoot-Out

Nov 10 - Nov 20, 2021

This year’s theme is shadows – chosen by last year’s Shoot-Out winner, Orah Moore. Entries can be classic in nature where light is the key element. Entries can be black & white, in color, manipulated, layered or part of a mixed media piece – as long as the photograph is the majority element. Don’t go digging around in the shadows of your archives because a rule of this year’s theme is that your entry needs to have been captured or made between reading these rules and the entry deadline, which is Saturday October 17th.


Submit your entry to Axel’s Gallery and win a chance for a solo exhibition in 2021 plus other incredible prizes. Entries will be not only be judged by a small panel of professionals embedded in the art and photography world of Vermont but by your peers (a person who is equal to another in abilities and qualifications!).

PAST Exhibitions

Blue by Kate Fetherston

Rarest color in flora and fauna, once in a blue moon is an occasion of omen or of celebration. Blue skies, blue waters foster feelings of hope, freedom, possibility. Happiness is symbolized as a bluebird. Then again, a blue mood might be sad, lonely, wistful or pensive. Blue’s the color of shadows, of twilight, of changing light. This show is an homage to blue’s power to evoke a range of expression perhaps unequaled in the rainbow.

Line and Shape by Axel Stohlberg

This small collection of simple drawings are natural mates to his sculptures of wire and wood. For decades his worked as focused on the house shape. Some would say that it is his trademark shape. This shape is something that is familiar to us all.

"Barely Touching"

“Barely Touching” is a collaborative project between Kelly Holt and Susan Calza with one basic premise: the work reflects their personal reactions to the societal challenges that erupted during the year 2020. While video is a main component of the exhibition, the show also features scultpture and mixed media pieces. The work addresses a deep sense of longing and the tension between connection and disconnection in relationship, ie. human, environmental and societal.

Kelly Holt’s work references distance and the ethereal and Susan Calza’s video tends to be close up and visceral while her sculptures are multilayered and specifically address issues of race. 


Their work seems to leave us asking: “Where are we headed?” 


“Barely Touching” is also an ongoing collaborative community project. The artists are asking community members to tell their 2020 stories which will be filmed and included in a video narrative. The completed video documentary will be exhibited at Axel’s Gallery in the fall of 2021.
