Nelson Suter Art Society

The Bishopdale Sketching Club, formed in 1889 by Bishop Suter, became known in 1901 as the Suter Art Society. The Bishop Suter Art Gallery is made available for the society exhibitions and other activities are held elsewhere in the city. There are at least two exhibitions a year when works by local and other New Zealand artists are on sale. The society has no permanent collection but purchases works from time to time for presentation to the Bishop Suter Gallery.
