While we wait to our permanent location to open, we are launching a satellite exhibition series in August 2018 - April 2019. LAND AND SEA, in partnership with art organizations and curators from across the South, will comprise five separate exhibitions. The series will take place with in proximity to the site, along Main Street in Chattanooga, TN. Each show will be complemented by regular programming carefully designed to draw out different aspects of each show, extending meaning and relationships not only into other realms of art but also out of the gallery and into the world.


Inaugural Show: LAND AND SEA

Curatorial Brief

Over time answers to the mysteries of the world, the ones hidden in the depths of the oceans, atop mountains, and embedded in the soil beneath our feet, have gradually revealed themselves. Similarly, there are mysteries of our own making, systematic forces of industry that see towns and cities, neighborhoods, rise up around us affecting how humans interact with one another, as well as their built and natural environments. But there is still more, so much more, maybe even too much. Stove Works in collaboration with Daniel Fuller, Curator of the Atlanta Contemporary, introduces the exhibition, LAND AND SEA. Through sculpture, video, painting, and sound, LAND AND SEA explores how water, air, and soil, those specifically of Chattanooga and East Tennessee, are altered, inhabited, mythologized, reduced, abused, explored, and celebrated.


Con el tiempo, las respuestas a los misterios del mundo, las que están escondidas en las profundidades de los océanos, en las montañas, e incrustadas en el suelo bajo nuestros pies, se han revelado gradualmente. De manera similar, hay misterios de nuestra propia creación, fuerzas sistémicas de la industria; que ven ciudades y pueblos, barrios, se elevan a nuestro alrededor y afectan la forma en que los humanos interactúan entre sí, así como sus entornos naturales y construidos. Pero aún hay más, mucho más, tal vez demasiado. Stove Works en colaboración con Daniel Fuller, Curador del Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Atlanta, presenta la exposición, LAND AND SEA. A través de la escultura, el video, la pintura y el sonido, LAND AND SEA explora cómo el agua, el aire y el suelo, específicamente los de Chattanooga y el Este de Tennessee, se alteran, habitan, mitifican, reducen, abusan, exploran y celebran.
