OPENING APRIL 6: "Connoisseur: Private Collecting in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee" is on exhibit at William King Museum of Art, Abingdon, Va. A connoisseur is one who has developed an acute perception about a particular style or genre of art, one who has acquired a discerning knowledge about the characteristics of the works he or she collects. The 12 connoisseurs whose collections are represented in this exhibition are from Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.Through them we explore various cultures — Asian carvings and embroidery on silk, 18th-century English silver, prints by Rembrandt, Renoir and Matisse, a French Rococo gilt table, contemporary art glass, early 20th-century American social realist paintings, and more. An opening reception is held April 6 from 6-8 p.m. 276-638-5005,
