208 Bridge Street Nelson, South Island 7010
Suter Art Gallery houses some of Nelson's finest masterpieces such as the watercolour collection of John Gully and artworks of modernist painter Sir M Tosswill Woollaston, to name a few. The art gallery was dedicated to the mission and vision of Bishop Andrew Burn Suter, who dreamt of putting up an art gallery for Nelson. After his death, several actions were made to realize his dream, some of which were donations from his wife and the others were contributions from the Contemporary Art Society. Since then, Nelson's thriving art scene can be linked to the foundations of Suter Art Gallery, as it caters to painters, woodworkers, potters, and other art enthusiasts. Today, the Board of Trustees handle the day to day operations of the gallery, making Bishop Andrew's dream more relevant than what he ever imagined. Other elements inside the Suter Art Gallery is a theatre that serves as host to several film screenings and local theatrical events.
