The Suter Art Gallery - Cruel City

Cruel City 6 July – 18 August
In a letter to Suter Gallery staff in 1978, the great New Zealand modern painter, Colin McCahon stated that: “Nelson is a cruel city – to people and to paintings.” By turning this statement into an hypothesis, Cruel City asks whether Nelson is any kinder to innovative artists, especially those working in conceptual and abstract styles.
Cruel City will feature major new work by artists based in Nelson: Josephine Cachemaille, Dan Campion, Lisa Chandler and Claire Ellery.
Opening Friday 12 July 5.30 pm
Artists talk Saturday 3 August 2 pm
All artists will be present
