Had to cancel much anticipated visit to the falls and look out mountain due to recent rains and boulders falling. Maybe a different season would make a better time for this

This place has nice artwork; however, the gallery has a pretentious atmosphere. The art view bluff district has a cool vibe to it, but once you enter the gallery and they tell you to leave your coffee at the door (even though it has a lid) you just have to wonder. I've been in high-end galleries around the country and... More

You may think of aquariums & choo-choo's when you think of Chattanooga, but once you visit this amazing hidden gem, you will think of Icarus when you visit the city

Very diverse collection of artworks by artists in many different media. If you visit the Bluff View area, don't miss the River Gallery! It is as good as many museums.

My husband and I enjoyed this store immensely! We wandered from room to room in a vintage building, which used to be apartments. The rooms were made cheerful by an abundance of natural light and tasteful arrangements & displays of the art. There was a variety of artwork & paintings, which I loved. I settled upon a HUGE praying mantis... More

I had only recently heard of the art district and would have visited sooner. The River Gallery and sculpture garden was aesthetic, inspiring, and well worth a longer stay. The owner of the art gallery featured many works of all tastes and mediums. He spent much time telling me about the artists and their techniques, which I greatly enjoyed. The... More

Lots of different pieces here, with room after room of selections. But everything is relatively expensive, and there's little fiber art and uninteresting jewelry.

I have a home full of art! Love art and when we travel, I always bring something back until this trip. I went there...hoping for some local artist type co-op prices...but not here. The most expensive was a $16,000 bust...average pricing was $700 and up...jewelery, clothing and some small art items for less. Just disappointing price range and offerings from... More

A great assortment of artists and craftsmen. Much larger than it appears from the outside. Beautifully displayed and arranged in groupings, whether glass, pottery, sculpture, or paintings.
