A Little About The Museum

William King Museum of Art is an ever-changing gallery and gathering space in the vibrant arts and cultural community of Abingdon, VA. Our exhibitions range from contemporary art made right here in our Appalachian region to fine art from all around the world.

WKMA is also home to the Betsy K. White Cultural Heritage Research Archive, one of the most thorough documentations of the rich decorative arts legacy of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee in existence. This research is reflected in our two cultural heritage galleries, which celebrate that legacy.
