“I shared in advance with Sherry the types of art i was interested in seeing on my half day private tour. She sent me various artists links. I selected three. She arranged to pick me up and set up meeting each of the artists at their studio. She also provided a couple other extras to see during the timeframe. She’s friendly, easy to be with and a professional. This was a highlight of my first trip to Asheville. I would highly recommend her and this experience to anyone.”

“Starting your visit to Asheville with Arts Connection Tours (ACTs) is a must. Sherry Masters is the Best tour guide, who truly understands the heart of this mountain community! The private tours with the artist and learning their stories, seeing their work, is what makes ACTs truly special!!! Sherry being an Ashville area native truly knows the city and all of its Art scene!!! Getting to know her was the extra bonus!!! She is part of our extended family now, and we look forward to Future ACTs adventures when we visit Asheville again. She truly made us feel welcomed and at home with the conversation and an Amazing tour!!!”

“What a wonderful time I had with you on the Art Tour last Thursday. It was one of the most enjoyable days I’ve had in a long time! Your choices of artists were perfect. Each was so different and at the top of his craft. It was delightful getting to talk to each of them and to get to know them. You did such a great job in planning the trip–it was relaxing, educational, stimulating, and fun and your thoughtful preparation of snacks was so nice and delicious.”

“This Art Tour was not only enjoyable but very educational for us. We saw demonstrations of how glass objects are blown, lawn objects created, and Raku vessels fired and polished. We completed this tour with a very solid understanding of what we had just seen and purchased. The artists were much more interested in introducing you to their expertise than selling you their wares. However, we could not resist several of the items we saw. If you get the chance, be sure and book an art tour with Sherry. It was a great way to spend the day in Asheville.”
