The Gallery:  Where Nature and Art Converge


Cross the creek to experience the new Liquidambar Art Gallery and studios located in the magical heart of the Sequatchie Valley, just 45 minutes from Chattanooga.

Enjoy a visual feast of art made here in our studios featuring ceramics, jewelry, flameworked glass, metal ornaments and sculptures, kaleidoscopes, and paintings  –  all unique gift ideas.

Watch our artists painting, working glass, and making pottery. Relax in the Gallery library with S.V.I.’s favorite books on the good life–a cozy place to chat with the artists.

There are  special events each weekend, including hikes, tours, unique snacks or teas, sales of garden products, workshops, and special exhibits, as well as a chance to help with pruning and greenhouse activities and trail maintenance.  We will have tours of the greenhouse, gardens, and hand-crafted buildings made of rock, logs, clay, and straw, powered by the sun.  Hike on our marked mountain nature trails, located on 350 acres protected by the Land Trust of Tennessee.  Learn about over 100 shrubs and trees in the forest and gardens by walking the Pipsissewa Arboretum Trail.

Dress for adventure!

We will be open for sales most weekends, from 10 am to 5 pm CST or by appointment — just give us a call at 423-949-5922/4598 or email

For more information, see Liquidambar’s website or Facebook page.

Proceeds from the Gallery help support the educational programs of S.V.I.
