Exhibition opening: we are able to extend viewing hours by arrangement because we'd love you to experience the inspiration of our Wellington and South Coast artists!

Join in our weekend of events exploring the life and work of Mother Suzanne Aubert, New Zealand and Island Bay icon.

Suzanne Aubert (1835 – 1926) devoted her life to helping others. Her work took her from France to the Whanganui River and finally to Island Bay in Wellington. Along the way she founded a new Catholic congregation, cared for children and the sick, and documented her work in Māori, English and French.

Mother Aubert founded the religious order ‘Daughters of Our Lady of Compassion’ in 1892. She later started two hospitals in Wellington: St Joseph’s Home for the Incurables in 1900, and Our Lady’s Home of Compassion in 1907. The Soup Kitchen she started in Tory St continues its service today.
