River Gallery Sculpture Garden presents artist Mia Kaplan’s latest addition to her installation in the garden along the Tennessee River. “Blooms Along the River” is a continuation of the works she installed during her exhibition earlier this year.
Kaplan is a multi-disciplined artist who works in response to natural environments. During her last visit to Chattanooga, she painted her sculptural blooms entitled “Chattanooga Reliquaries” while drawing the palette compositions directly from the surrounding landscape this past May.
To celebrate the fall months, Kaplan will return and once again paint from the sights and sounds of Bluff View Arts District en plein air (a term coined by the French for works that are created “in open air”. )
She will be bringing primed pieces in and will be finishing them on site in the days leading up to the opening. Visitors are welcome to observe and meet the artist at work on October 21 & 21, between the hours of 10am and 2pm at the River Gallery Sculpture Garden.
