Art Before Dark

Friday 3rd December 2021

Looking for a fun and vibrant event to kick start a summer evening? Why not explore The Suter like you have never seen it before? Art Before Dark is a free entry event set to celebrate visual and performance art, complemented with kai, kōrero and local drinks. Featuring The Suter’s exhibitions, delightful live music, and local performers with their creative inspiration and breathtaking costumes. Starting at 6pm, this is a perfect time and place to meet up and catch up after your workweek.

Be confronted and challenged by “Kiss Me Hardy (But not like that!)”, part of The Suter’s Contemporary Art Project. These works link absurdity and art — very relevant during these current times of unease. Be grounded with the works from “Fire and Earth” featuring the very best work by clay artists from the Top of the South.

Last year Art Before Dark was an outstanding success and you will not be disappointed this year.
