Up on the bluffs above Chattanooga are several restaurants, museums, and this charming art gallery. It features sculptures, paintings of various types, glass work, ceramics, jewelry, just about any medium you can think of. On this day, since it was a Black Friday event, several artists were on hand, some actually working and answering questions about their works. There were... More

We took a leisurely walk after a late lunch and toured this scenic garden full of sculpture exhibits by famous artists. Our favorite was the Allan Houser "Mother's Little Boy" This garden is well designed to give you a scenic panorama of the river while enjoying 23 different sculptures. There was some sculpture for everyone's taste.

Although small in size it's a great garden to relax at, and appreciate the abundant art. Some sculptures are rather odd, but some are also outstanding. The view of the river, and Maclellan Island are solid too.

Followed the winding street, from the Hunter Museum to the Sculpture Garden and was pleasantly surprised. A beautiful exhibit containing many interesting pieces of art. We visited on a sunny day and it was a good experience.

What an interesting collection of jewelry, painting, ceramics, and eclectic artwork! A wide range of pricing so there's some very reasonable items for those on a budget! Enjoyed looking at the local artists goods!

We enjoyed our visit as usual to the Bluff View Inn and this area on our recent trip to Virginia! The River Gallery was a gallery that had always been closed when we were in Chattanooga but this time we hit town when it was open. We were glad we did as we were able to view their great selection... More

Have visited several times when we pass through Chattanooga. We think the gallery presents a wonderful selection items from sculpture, paintings, stained glass, garden art and ceramics just to mention a few. We never fail to purchase a item or two at each visit. We run by a knowledgable and helpful staff. A good place to purchase a gift for... More

the sculpture garden is an absolute treasure. Situated on the bluff overlooking the river, the views and landscaping are beautiful in and of themselves. Add to that gorgeous works of art, and this regrettably small park is still a Chattanooga highlight!
