Art historian extraordinaire, outstanding lecturer, premier art tour guide--these phrases all describe Cherise Klebanov. I have taken numerous classes and gone on many museum and gallery tours with Cherise, and each experience has been, not only, informative, but entertaining. I try to work my schedule around her art lectures and gallery tours. Cherise Klebanov is a totally accomplished woman! Linda M.
Cherise has brought a high level of enthusiasm, insight and meaning to art through her wonderful lecture classes and museum tours. Over the past five years I learned to love, appreciate and most of all, understand art as never before. Marcia B.
For the past five years Cherise Klebanov has been my guide and instructor through the New York and suburban art scene. The range and breadth of her knowledge and understanding of art though all ages right up to the most cutting edge is just remarkable. She has enormously enhanced my appreciation of art and the artists who create it. There is no art period for which Cherise does not have knowledge and insight. It is also such a great pleasure to be with her while touring museums or galleries because she has such a vibrant and upbeat personality. Lynn P.

I have been taking Cherise's gallery tours for the last two years! Cherise is very knowledgeable and always well prepared. Willing to answer questions and supply interesting anecdotes. She covers many galleries, uptown, Chelsea, or in Soho. It has been a pleasure to take her gallery tours. Katy V.
When a friend and I were talking about how much we enjoyed guided art tours in Europe, we decided to arrange one in NYC. Luckily Cherise had been recommended by another friend who heard one of her wonderful art lectures. We contacted her, she answered right away and we picked a date. Within 24 hours, 10 others committed to join us!
Cherise chose the Chelsea area for the first tour. I've been on other tours of those galleries. While each guide brings their own prospective, Cherise is able to fit into the mood and needs of a group and make it a special experience. We learned so much, had such a good time that we scheduled another one of the Upper East Side right away. Now we're hoping to go to Dia Beacon this fall. Having Cherise as a resource is a blessing. No more trying to fit my schedule into an organized group. Get your plan together, work with her and you will love the experience! We highly recommend Cherise! Susan S.
When I was introduced to Cherise several years ago, I had no idea how much I would love seeing art with her. Cherise brings knowledge about art and history together. She has a wonderful way of encouraging questions and answers them at a level that corresponds. Art that I thought I couldn't understand has new meaning when I see it through Cherise's eyes. Cherise has helped me put together a gallery visit with women from different countries. They all said it was the best art experience they had ever had. I always leave a visit with her feeling enriched on so many levels. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. Maxine F.
