For over thirty years, Waynesboro native Mark Cline has covered commonwealth and country with a vast array of delightful, fantastic, and (occasionally) horrific creatures. From alien, ghost, and pirate attractions to Broadway plays, museums, and national television, Cline’s creations have captivated a worldwide audience. Roadside Attractions: The Weird and Wonderful Worlds of Mark Cline explores the life and work of this Rockbridge County-based artist through drawings, photos, video, and large-scale fiberglass creatures ranging from King Kong and Humpty Dumpty to Frankenchicken and the artist himself.

William King Museum celebrates the diversity of artistic talent in the Southern Appalachian Highlands. From These Hills is a biennial exhibition series begun just one year after the Arts Center opened in the spring of 1992. This twelfth biennial exhibition invites artists in all stages of their careers working in Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee, Western North Carolina and parts of Kentucky and West Virginia to submit their work for consideration. The exhibition always boasts a wide range of mediums and subjects, yet always forms a unified voice regarding the significance of living in this notable time and place.
