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!

We've Been Going Here Since My Girls, 27 and 30 now, Were Little! When they were small I would ask them to guess how much each piece of art cost, most are for sale...they loved that game. Great location and a fun visit! Now we take my grandson to the gallery.

Interesting little sculpture garden tucked into the side of one of the cliffs. Looks like maybe the sculptures change every so often so could be good to visit more than once. Small garden-tuoe area that you can walk through and sit and observe the sculptures. Small map and write up at the entrance helps quite a bit. Also lists other... More

I love good sculpture and this place had some great stuff! The gallery itself was closed, but the sculpture garden was so good, we didn't even care. You just kind of walk around this beautiful outdoor gallery right on the edge of the river in the very beautiful Bluff View Art District. The sculpture garden is free and we were... More
