•OPENING AUG. 20: “Transforming Politics” opens at William King Museum of Art, Abingdon, Va. As part of the celebration of the centennial of women’s suffrage, the museum celebrates a women-led movement that sparked a transformation of politics around the world. The suffragettes used their artistic skills, creativity and resourcefulness in order to make history and, although some political affairs have changed, the passionate interests of women have not. Women continue to make their voices heard in conversations surrounding climate change, labor, societal values, economic class, the #metoo movement, LGBTQ+ rights, educational reform etc.The exhibitfeatures the work of four regional artists who take an active political stance on the above topics. Artists Margaret Gregg, Kathleen Thum, Laken Bridges and Alex Younger use their artwork to project their voices. 276-628-5005, www.williamkingmuseum.com
