“Located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

My wife and I walked through this gallery while walking along the riverfront during a recent trip to Chattanooga. This gallery is an old house and is huge. It is located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga. They have art from all over the country and they also have a few collections from local artists. There is every style of art represented here - photography, glass, wood, watercolor, metal sculptures, jewelry and everything in between. They also have a sculpture garden a block away that is quite interesting as well. There are a few benches around to relax a little. A nice area to spend the afternoon.

Forget high-priced museums. This little nook was such a dream. Nice way to escape from the midday sun and see some amazing work.

“Impossible for an art collector to resist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This gallery is a must-see. I have been visiting it for years, and it always has a wide variety of high-quality art pieces, paintings, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, fabric, and more in a range of prices. The staff are friendly and helpful and treat you like royalty no matter what you spend. The Bluff View Art District itself is worth a walk, especially the gardens nearby.

“Creative Local Art”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The River Gallery offers a varied selection of art created by local artists. Paintings, oil. acrylic, watercolor, etc. are available for purchase as well as art pottery, sculptures and jewelry. If you go to Rembrandt's next door for coffee be sure and finish before you enter the gallery, they can be a bit snippy about it.
