The Nelson Suter Art Society (NSAS) began as the Bishopdale Sketching Club established in 1889 by Bishop Suter and friends. 

Now with a dedicated exhibition space within The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū the Nelson Suter Art Society is a vibrant part of the Nelson arts community.

NSAS offers supporters (general) and working artist memberships, and benefits include exhibiting, workshops, trips, events and a regular newsletter.
