Chattanooga is a city dedicated to the arts. We have it on our buildings... in our parks... we even have it embedded into our sidewalks. Occasionally, we get really crazy and put it in a gallery.
Hunter Museum of American Art
Built on a ninety-foot limestone bluff overlooking the Tennessee River and comprised of a 1905 classical revival mansion, a low-slung 1970s building and a 2005 contemporary structure, the Hunter Museum of American Art showcases 100 years of architecture and houses the finest collection of American art in the Southeast. The collection of the Hunter Museum spans the history of American art from the colonial period to the present day, and covers a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, contemporary studio glass, and crafts.
Area 61 Gallery
Area 61 Gallery features the work of 20+ professional local artists and craftsmen and includes hand-crafted furniture, fine art, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, woodwork, SoundCrewe handcrafted audio speakers and more. Monthly "First Friday" events allow collectors and those that appreciate art the opportunity to meet the artists, purchase current work or commission a custom piece. The gallery space is also available for corporate events - call for details & available dates.
Housed in a turn-of-the-century home, River Gallery features jewelry, paintings, sculpture, pottery and glass from prominent regional, national and international artists. It was the first business to open in the picturesque Bluff View Arts District and is located just steps away from the Hunter Museum of American Art.
Ignis Glass Studio
Prominent glass artist Christopher Mosey has moved his workshop and gallery to the heart of downtown. His handiwork is for sale in the back, ranging from sinuous bud vases to intricately folded bowls. The front of the shop however is dedicated to his unique hands-on experience, which allows people to blow their own ornaments or sun catchers.
Since 1998 Gallery 1401 has represented nationally and internationally acclaimed artists ranging in styles from contemporary realism to impressionism. Bronze sculpture, hand-blown glass, watercolor, oils and collage can all be found in the sprawling gallery, recently relocated to a space in Warehouse Row.
Founded in 1974, In-Town Gallery is one of the nation’s oldest cooperative art galleries. Styles range from folksy to classic with works from more than 30 artists. And it’s not just wall art – fine jewelry, pottery, stained glass, lamps and metal work are interspersed among photography, oils and mixed media.
