Current Exhibitions

Kiss Me, Hardy! (but not like that)
November 27th 2021 – 27th February 2022

Art and humour can be salves in an uneasy world and rather than ignoring or wallowing in the face of the various crises we face, the artists in Kiss Me, Hardy (but not like that) offer insight, critique and relief.

Lisa Walker, Becky Richards and Richard Reddaway interrogate value, materiality and consumerism, Christopher Ulutupu and PĀNiA! explore the development of identity in the face of colonialism, Hanna Shim looks at the various ways in which we understand and relate to each other within the contemporary context, while Richard Reddaway and Bryce Galloway question the narratives that dominate the artworld, each finding ways to interpret the world around us that is profoundly absurd.

Fire and Earth: Contemporary Ceramics from the Top of the South
November 13th 2021 – 13th February 2022

Fire & Earth, a biennial group exhibition, is part of the ongoing work by
The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū in showcasing the best ceramics that this region has to offer.

From contemporary interpretations of traditional domestic-ware to conceptual installation pieces and perfectly realised vessels, the result is an exhibition that highlights the quality of ceramics produced by some of the best makers in the country.

Nelson Suter Art Society: DIVAS
November 8th – 4th December 2021

Divas by Ynes Guenvara, the very colourful and intriguing new exhibition in the McKee Gallery is now open for viewing by the public. Divas depicts Latin divas who although of the 1920s, were ahead of their times, and they have been re-imagined in co-relation to tribute elements from Kiwi artist Gordon Walters, as well as various floral designs.

Vaccination Certificates are required under the new government
COVID-19 Protection Framework

At The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū, the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and employees is our priority and, after consideration, we have made the decision that requires all people entering The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū to be double vaccinated. As a multi-purpose facility, and with many school-age educational groups visiting, this requirement provides an added layer of safety and protection for those who are unable to be vaccinated, and we believe this is the best way to keep our spaces accessible for as many people as possible.

From the morning of Friday 3rd December 2021, all visitors to
The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū will need to be able to present information on their vaccination status using My Vaccine Pass. Children under 12 are exempt. Please note, visitors may also be asked to provide proof of identity that corresponds to the name on the vaccination certificate.

We will continue to follow the advice and regulations of the New Zealand government and will continue to review our policies and processes regularly.
