From William King Museum of Art on Thursday, November 29th, 2018 in Arts & Culture & Photos
Join William King Museum of Art on December 6 from 6-8 p.m. for the opening reception of Eric Drummond Smith's exhibition, Music.
“First I turn on the music… I make marks on paper or wood or canvas, the music driving my hand like an old steam engine.” — Eric Drummond Smith, artist statement
Eric Drummond Smith draws from a deep well in his art-making– a well overflowing with music, history, philosophy, emotions, religion, and memory. His work is an almost stream-of-consciousness effort, moving from swaths of color to lines of ink and, eventually, a finished piece that brings some order to the chaos.
Music is on view in the Panoramic Gallery through December 30, 2018.
William King Museum of Art is located at 415 Academy Drive in Abingdon, VA. Hours of operation are Mon-Sat. from 10-5 p.m. and Sunday from 1-5 p.m. For information on any of the current exhibitions please call (276) 628-5005 ext. 107 to speak with Sarah Stanley, WKMA Curator.
