Art Connections Tours are designed to connect art lovers and collectors with the makers in the most authentic way: one on one, in the places where they do their work in scenic Western North Carolina. After 25 years of helping guide artists’ careers as a gallery manager and buyer, Sherry Masters shares her many connections and invites participants inside the studios of leading and emerging artists in a range of media from clay, fiber, metals, wood, glass and more. Tours to visit artist studios are planned to suit your schedule. The tour could include a 1.5 hour River Arts District overview; a half-day tour to studios in and around Asheville; or a full day tour that goes beyond Asheville into the surrounding region. Sherry will curate and plan the tour based on your interests and input. With her vast network of area artists Sherry strives to match your interests with the studio visits to make the trip memorable and educational.
