2:00 pm Betsy K. White Cultural Heritage Gallery Opening - Public Reception

Betsy K. White Cultural Heritage Gallery
Public Reception: December 3, 2017 from 2 – 4 p.m.

On Sunday, December 3, from 2-4 p.m., William King Museum of Art (WKMA) will host a public reception to debut the new Betsy K. White Cultural Heritage Gallery, which will permanently house the museum’s cultural heritage collection. The exhibit in the new gallery is comprised of objects produced in 19th and early-20th century Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee—ceramics, textiles, woodwork, metalwork, paintings, and more—and is set to be the flagship asset of WKMA’s Cultural Heritage Project (CHP). Initiated in 1994 by longtime WKMA Director Betsy White, the CHP’s mission is to preserve, promote, and celebrate our region’s legacy of material cultural and decorative arts. To date, the Project has resulted in: over thirty exhibitions; a cultural heritage archive that documents the history and provenance of 2000+ cultural heritage items; and two scholarly books—Great Road Style (2006, University of VA Press) and Backcountry Makers (2013, University of TN Press).
