The coming year will be filled with exciting opportunities to reconnect with old friends and to make new acquaintances. One of our oldest friends is Gerd Koch, artist, educator and intrepid global traveler. Gerd has planned and led 20 international tours and taken over 30 independent trips across Europe. He has spent a life time teaching others to see the world through his creative eyes; an achievement which is being recognized by ‘Who’s Who’ with a Life Time Achievement Award.
Gerd has had a huge impact on the creative community of Ventura and not least because of his expert tours of the great art collections of the world. To mark our 20th anniversary Gerd is hosting a special reception at Studio Channel Islands on the 27th of January to discuss ideas for tours and independent travel. The event starts at 12:30pm and will last about an hour and half. There will be wine and nibbles. The event is FREE and there will be brochures to take away to peruse at your leisure.
