Exhibition Opening – First Thursday

Home: One Family, 200 Years of History
March 3 – July 10, 2017
Opening Reception March 2, 2017
Price-Strongwell Galleries

In 1859, David Droke built a farmhouse in Piney Flats, Tennessee, as part of his carpentry apprenticeship. From that time onward, the house and its history have been passed down from generation to generation of Droke children who have lived in the house, worked the land, and remembered and added to the story of their family. This exhibit traces the last two hundred years of Appalachia and America through the story of one family—from the Civil War to the Great Depression and beyond. This house is our history— it’s American history, regional history, family history but it’s more than that. It’s home.

6:00 pm First Thursday - Opening Reception for Connoisseur

Connoisseur: Private Collecting in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee
Opening Reception: April 6, 2017 from 6 – 8 p.m.
March 29 – August 13, 2017

Connoisseur will be on display in United-Legard Galleries from March 29 – August 13, and is sponsored by Food City. At 7 p.m. on April 6, as part of Abingdon First Thursday, the William King Society presents a special lecture on the exhibition by guest curator, Mary G. Haviland, Ph.D. A connoisseur is one who has developed an acute perception about a particular style or genre of art, one who has acquired a discerning knowledge about the characteristics of the works he or she collects. The twelve connoisseurs whose collections are represented in this exhibition are from Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. The exhibition is both eclectic and broad in scope, with the common thread that all the works reveal the passion of the collectors. Through them we can explore various cultures—Asian carvings and embroidery on silk, 18th century English silver, exquisite prints by Rembrandt, Renoir and Matisse, a French Rococo gilt table, contemporary art glass, early 20th century American social realist paintings, and more—all treasures found here in our region to celebrate William King Museum of Art’s 25th anniversary.
