The Suter

One Hundred Years in Nelson


Soft-Cover - As-New
Published 1999


The Bishop Suter Art Gallery is one of Nelson's most respected institutions in a city renowned for its cultural heritage.
The Suter gallery has also always been a gallant pioneer in its field.
It was only the third art gallery to be built in New Zealand and one of the first to be purpose-designed.
Uniquely, it has always been owned and operated by a private trust rather than by its local authorities and is only partially publicly funded.
Though always financially beleaguered, it is one of the most vibrant and innovative galleries in New Zealand and has had its share of colourful personalities.

This fascinating centennial volume, as well as setting the Suter gallery in the context of the wider New Zealand artistic scene, is also a valuable reference work on New Zealand and Nelson art.
It is richly illustrated from the gallery's collection, many of the works being supported with essays contributed by leading art authorities.
Finally, it includes the entire catalogue of the gallery's permanent collection.
