The William King Museum of Art returns to the Bristol Public Library for an incredible program on the history of quilts and quilting in the Appalachian region.

The presentation will begin in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room on September 12 at 6:00 p.m. Interested patrons and visitors will have the opportunity to meet the wonderful staff from the William King Museum and participate in a family-friendly art project. Make sure to drop in for this wonderful presentation, and don't forget to pick up your very own souvenir!

Starting September 1, the Bristol Public Library will be featuring the beautiful creative works of a local quilting guild: the Wolf Hills Quilters. Thanks to their generosity, the library is able to present a variety of quilts in the Virgie R. Fleenor Gallery for the duration of September!

Visitors will have the chance to view some of the most beautiful quilts in the region and uncover the rich, hidden history of quilts. We’re very excited about our gallery, and we hope you’ll join us as we celebrate both the creative and cultural history of the region!
