Photography by Gallery Artist Marie Whitton, Cartersville GA
Original framed works are available as well as signed, matted prints.
Mixed-Media Photography by Mary Brett, Chattanooga TN
Each piece is an original work of art and incorporates photography with natural elements found at the site. For example, “Go Forth Creek” is a stunning piece containing the photography of the creek with a frame of river rock from the creek bed. The stone work on the frame provides an unusual depth to the piece.
Hand-Forged Ironworks by Blacksmith Artist, Walter Howell, Henagar AL (located on beautiful Sand Mountain)
Each piece is a stunning original work of art. We have a great selection of Walter’s fireplace and firepit tools, grill “pig-tail” forks, pokers, leaf motif hooks, towel rods, and almost too-realistic coiled snakes.
Each hand-forged and hand-rubbed to a beautiful finish by the artist. Custom orders accepted and can be coordinated through our shop.
Black Wire Art by Heather Nicely, Mentone AL
Heather’s quirky art will be a conversation starter at your home. A sample of her work here, “Poppies”, is a beautiful rendition of flowers secured on a piece of gnarly grapevine. Unique. Unusual.
Custom orders accepted and can be coordinated through our shop.
Stone Vessels by Carver Lyle Nicely, Mentone AL
Take home a piece of Lookout Mountain! Each piece of rock is hand selected for color variations and beauty. Each vessel is chiseled by hand and then sand-blasted to create the natural appearance you see here. Pieces vary from (largest) approximately 31” L x 18” W for the large size; 20”L x 14” W for the small size, and 24”L x 14” W for the medium size. All are about 4-5 ½”H. Each is an original piece of art and takes hours of work to create the finished product you see here. Vessels can be drilled for use as a fountain. Inquiries welcomed.
“Plate Breaker” China Jewelry by Trisha Kennamer, Henager AL (Sand Mountain)
