Nelson's Suter Gallery re-opens, bigger and better

From Standing Room Only, 12:45 pm on 2 October 2016

On Sunday, the people of Nelson get to see what a 12-million dollar rebuild of their art gallery has bought them. The Suter Art Gallery in the city's arts hub holds a valuable art collection that needed bigger and better accommodation. It's taken 18 months to revitalise the Suter, which is the oldest gallery in continuous use in New Zealand. RNZ's Nelson reporter Tracy Neal gets a sneak peak with Gallery director Julie Catchpole and the Suter Trust's chair Craig Potton, then Lynn Freeman crosses live to find out the mood of the big crowd at the official opening.
