Asheville Art Tour is a first-of-its-kind art tour of Asheville artist studios, running Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. from the French Broad Food Co-Op. Visitors ride on LaZoom’s vaudeville style purple bus, traveling into artist studios and speaking with artists in the River Arts District, Downtown and West Asheville. The Art Tours are led by internationally known artist, Gabriel Schaffer, and visitors will walk away from the tour with a glimpse into the process of art-making and a better understanding of the Asheville art community.
“We are connecting people who are interested in contemporary art to the contemporary artists. We are raising an awareness of the Asheville contemporary art scene by taking people directly into artist studios,” says Schaffer. “This Art Tour is a way to make the contemporary Asheville arts scene accessible.”
