Sherry has deep roots in the art and craft traditions of Western North Carolina.

For as long as I can remember I have loved all things handmade.  The desire to see artwork, to own special pieces, and sometimes trying it out myself to learn the processes has been ever present in my life. 

An ‘art buyer’ career working in two large fine craft galleries has satisfied this art interest, and I’ve traveled and networked across the country on behalf of the craft industry.  Opportunities have come my way to judge art shows, jury artists into festivals and exhibitions, plan an array of special events, and just sell handmade work for over 25 years.  The best part has been in knowing so many artists and getting insight into their creativity.  This is what I offer you through Art Connections.

Connecting artists to new customers and introducing new homeowners to the artists that align with their interests is one way my background can be of service.  I also enjoy helping visitors experience the art scene in western NC through curated tours.

Western NC has a tremendous number of high-level artists living and working in the region.  You’ll find none better than Sherry Masters, a native and veteran art insider of the area to help you experience and connect to art.
