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. Tours depart from various studios. Sherry will curate and plan the tour based on your interests and input.
