Checking out the new Suter Art Gallery

We went to visit the new Suter Art Gallery. We saw the building where the original gallery was. We found out about Bishop Suter and his wife who built the original gallery so that all the people of Nelson could enjoy the paintings. We listened to the story about Nelson heroine Huria Matenga who helped save people who were shipwrecked at Whakapuaka while we were looking at a painting of Huria Matenga. We finished our visit by going on a scavenger hunt to look for paintings in all the different galleries.
