William King Museum continues to celebrate the diversity of regional artistic talent with its biennial exhibition, From These Hills: Contemporary Art in the Southern Appalachian Highlands, a major exhibition of new works by artists working in all media in Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee, Western North Carolina, Southern West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky. The 2013 exhibition will open in The United Company Contemporary Regional Gallery of William King Museum, Abingdon, Virginia, on October 18, 2013, and will continue through February 16, 2014.
This exhibition will be guest-curated by Steven Matijcio, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Southeast Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Inclusion in "American Art Today: Figures"

I'm really looking forward to this exhibit. Both the town of Highlands and The Bascom are really intensely cool-just getting up there through waterfall row is something else. In addition to regular local and national exhibits, The Bascom is a teaching venue, like Arrowmont. They host amazing outside sculptural installations, including a monumental Patrick Dougherty environmental stick installation that I hope is still standing. (Dougherty will be a visiting artist at ETSU this fall: )
