Did you make it to the reopening of The Suter Art Gallery in Nelson yesterday? I've been taking photographs of the progress of the construction for Contour Roofing who manufactured the zinc siding. The architects, Warren and Mahoney, designed the new structure around the existing 1899 heritage building. It's definitely worth checking out.
The new modern entrance sits alongside the original wall.
The old "Suter Memorial Art Gallery" name is prominent as you walk inside the entrance.
This is the original eave (as viewed from the roof).
The cafe is in the same location with a view over the pond...
The boardwalk passes outside art installations
with the inside art also visible.
The zinc siding covers the entire South face with interesting aspects and corners.
Since this week looks like more rain, this may be the perfect outing for the family during the last week of School holidays.
For information about what's on display, go to the Suter website.
