Iconic art gallery set to reopen


After a $12 million redevelopment, Nelson’s iconic Suter Art Gallery is set to reopen in October.

Everyone is invited to attend the October 2 reopening, become a part of an artwork or create a piece of art themselves.

The opening suite of exhibitions, Milk and Honey, Promised Land, and Exodus, is a window to some of Nelson’s most significant artists and includes artworks drawn from The Suter collection, with a few star loans from major New Zealand art galleries. This series of exhibitions will be framed beautifully within the redeveloped spaces of the Suter Gallery.

The redevelopment has been underway since early 2015 with The Suter Art Gallery currently on the move from the temporary premises on Halifax Street back into its smartened up, larger Bridge Street home, ahead of opening day on Sunday, October 2.
