Welcome to The Suter Art Gallery – where art matters The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū is a memorial to the second Bishop of Nelson, Andrew Burn Suter (1830-1895).

In 1889 he established the Bishopdale Sketching Club (now the Nelson Suter Art Society) and served as its first President and critic. He was also a friend of the painter John Gully (1819-1888) and developed a substantial collection of that artist’s work.

Craig Potton Gallery + Store was inspired by Nelson-born conservationist and photographer, Craig Potton, and opened in September 2013. Craig Potton is New Zealand’s best known landscape photographer and an ardent conservationist. In pursuit of his photography he has tramped and climbed extensively in New Zealand, its sub-Antarctic Islands, the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, the Nepal Himalaya, and more recently Poland, India and Iceland. For more than four decades he has documented the New Zealand wilderness, exploring relationships between the concept of artistic beauty and wilderness in the natural world. With the help of his wife Catherine (Director), Rachel (Gallery Manager), Tania and Christine (Gallery Assistants) the gallery now showcases Craig’s extensive body of work as well as the fine art and jewellery of some of the most significant contemporary artists in New Zealand.
