Nelson’s Art Scene Flourishes: The Suter’s Mid-Winter Spectacular Raises $52,000!

Art, community, and generosity were all on show at The Suter Art Gallery’s Mid-Winter Spectacular annual fundraising dinner and auction, held at Hopgood’s and Co. restaurant on Friday 21 July. The event raised an incredible $52,000, which will go towards the preservation and expansion of The Suter’s collection of artworks.

Guests were welcomed with warm smiles and a refreshing cocktail, setting the tone for an evening of fun and fundraising, with artworks donated by renowned artists such as Euan Macleod, Ewan McDougall, John Gully, Mandy Gargiulo, Juliana Trolove, Georgina Hoby-Scutt, Kevin Judd, and Grant Palliser going under the hammer along with a range of incredible one-off experiences.

Beyond the art, Chef Kevin Hopgood and his talented team at Hopgood’s & Co. delighted guests with a wonderful culinary experience, adding a flavourful touch to the evening. The fundraiser paid tribute to the memory of Sari Hodgson, a former Chair of The Suter, who was instrumental in organising The Suter’s WineArt Degustation Dinners and auctions, the precursors to the night’s event.

As our collection is solely built through fundraising, bequests, and donations, your contribution plays a vital role in creating an art legacy for future generations. Thank you all for your continued support.
