Month of March and April:

Maeve Croghan's innovative interpretations of the nature painting genre have gained her much acclaim.   Maeve grew up living every summer on a remote island in Northern Michigan.  Here she developed a deep reverence for the lakes, woods, the surrounding lands and Nature.  When Maeve first visited California many years ago, she was overwhelmed by the magnificence of California's natural beauty.   She paints from a deep spiritual connection to the environment.  Her love of the land is understood in her energetic and color filled paintings.

Maeve Croghan's innovative interpretations of the nature painting genre have gained her much acclaim.   Maeve grew up living every summer on a remote island in Northern Michigan.  Here she developed a deep reverence for the lakes, woods, the surrounding lands and Nature.  When Maeve first visited California many years ago, she was overwhelmed by the magnificence of California's natural beauty.   She paints from a deep spiritual connection to the environment.  Her love of the land is understood in her energetic and color filled paintings.

Maeve’s oil paintings are begun outside.  She intensely observes the environment, becoming immersed in it as she paints.  The paintings are finished in the studio from her memory and personal interpretation, without photo references. 

Maeve has been painting since she was 15.  She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute [BFA program] for many years, as well the Portland Museum Art School and Corcoran School of Art.  She has a BA from New College of California in 'Art and Education' focusing on Art and Social Change.    

Maeve’s paintings have been chosen for multiple editions of  the juried books, “ART of Northern California” & “American Art Collector”, as well the "Studio Visit" art journal.  She has also been the recipient of many prestigious juried  awards.  Her paintings have been shown in many galleries around the country and in museum showings in Alaska, California, Oregon, New Mexico, Michigan and Japan. Most recently her paintings were chosen for exhibits at the Matsumoto Museum in Matsumoto, Japan, and for the Museum of the Living Artist in san Diego, Ca.  Her paintings are featured on the wine labels of  Castoro Cellars from Paso Robles, Ca.  Her work is in prominent collections throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan and Mexico. 

Maeve is the founder of the Mendocino Eco Artists, a professional group of artists who join together and have exhibits benefitting and bringing publicity for different environmental causes.  She is also a founding member of the 'Mackinac 7' Artists group of Mackinac Island, Michigan, a long time member of the Mendocino Plein Air Painters,(PAPM), and on the board of the Spring Open Studios Advisory Board at Hunters Point Artists' Studios in San Francisco. 

She teaches Plein air classes in Northern California, as well as in other locations around the country.

Maeve’s studio is located at Hunters Point Artists’ Shipyard Community, in San Francisco, California. 


I begin my paintings outside in nature.  There, I am influenced by the all the elements.  This affects my painting & the feeling I put into the paintings.  Being at the site allows me to deeply experience the nature as I am painting it.

 My subjects are carefully chosen to reflect a certain feeling I want to convey.  I am interested in how humans affect nature & how nature seems defy human touch. Often, I am attracted to the powerful twisty forms of old oaks, orchards and vines. I admire their ability to live through the elements - droughts, storms, great temperature differences.  And, the delicate amazing beauty of a wildflower and grasses can have equal allure. For me these beings possess a kind knowledge beyond our normal human understanding.  

 My paintings are completed in the studio.  At this point, I work from memory and feeling. As the work evolves, it often changes from the original scene, taking on its own life.  The paintings eventually become icons of my subjects.  There is a deep personal experience with each painting which always remains with me.

I try to keep the materials I use close to nature. I only use high quality oil paints ground from pigments and linseed oil - no synthetic materials. 

It is my wish that my paintings will bring this most important subject - nature and the environment - closer to the viewers attention and consciousness.  Through my art, people are enabled to experience nature in ways they may not have previously conceived of.

Keith Lenaburg
Art show featuring
Keith Lenaburg
Month of May and June
Save Keith Lenaburg 010518 - 010518 6

This show, titled "First Wave of Consciousness" showcases Keith's talent in creating beautiful pieces of abstract art by using different pouring techniques and then applying nature's forces to them. Some pieces are spun or tilted to create the desired effect, while others are created solely by gravity and the interaction between paints of different densities. Some pieces are created almost instantaneously, while others take hours or even days to come to final form. In many pieces, Keith uses metallic paint, which gives the piece depth and makes colors look different depending on how the light hits them.

Keith Lenaburg is a contemporary fine artist who lives and works in Santa Barbara, CA. He discovered early on that creating art is an essential part of his happiness, and chose to follow his passion by earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting from The University of California, Santa Barbara.

Lenaburg excels in a variety of media including fluid art, reverse glass paintings, and colored pencils. He uses vibrant colors and layers to create artwork that is both appealing and visually engaging, and is open to interpretation by the viewer. He finds fulfillment in creating special, unique pieces of art that inspire joy.

In addition, Lenaburg developed a technique that transforms ordinary photos into a work of art, using acrylic paint to create the reverse image on the back side of the glass and incorporating a paper inlay to give the piece added dimension. The resulting monochromatic piece looks like a photograph from far away, but as the viewer steps closer, it becomes clear that the image is formed from smaller abstract shapes.

Finally, Lenaburg specializes in colored pencil drawings. These pieces showcase his meticulous attention to detail. He uses vibrant colors, many layers, and expert blending to achieve photorealistic results.

His music takes you on an instrumental journey by blending pop, rock, folk, blues and ballads. Listeners and fans have called the music catchy, toe-tapping, beautiful and profoundly thought provoking.
Martin was first taught guitar by his father at age twelve. Shortly thereafter becoming influenced by such artists as Eric Clapton, the Doobie Brothers, James Taylor and Loggins & Messina. As he honed his craft, finger style influences included Laurence Juber, Tommy Emmanuel, Peppino D’Agostino and Acoustic Alchemy.

Martin has three projects available and released on Solid Air Records, a Grammy award winning label, “Turning Point” “Guitarist Off The Vine” and “Acoustically Speaking”.

His performances include the Cuesta Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo, a repeated featured artist for the Lazy Locals Concert series at Castoro Cellars, Morro Bay Harbor Festival, featured artist for Steve Key’s Songwriters at Play showcases, and countless appearances at over 80 area wineries and venues.
Martin has also opened concerts for Grammy winning guitarist Laurence Juber, Peppino D’Agostino and singer songwriter Karla Bonoff. As well as performing on KCBX and KRUSH radio and KSBY television in San Luis Obispo.

“The acoustic guitar inspires me to create. As I continued to grow musically, my experimentation with altered tunings led me to some of the great finger style players. Many of my compositions are my emotional response and a reflection of events in my life. Music is a gift from God that I love to share”.

Lazy Locals Concert: Bear Market Riot
Lazy Locals Concert: Bear Market Riot

Dam Fine Wine and great music make for a perfect Lazy Sunday.


Join us from 1:00-4:00pm on October 14th and rock out with Bear Market Riot!  You're welcome to bring lawn chairs. (no outside alcohol allowed)  

There will be delicious grub for purchase.

In 2014 Kirk Nordby and Nick Motil met at a songwriter showcase in San Luis Obispo, CA. Over a bowl of gumbo the two conspired to busk together at the Baywood-Los Osos Farmer's Market. Upon agreement that two beards are better than one, they became Bear Market Riot.

Bear Market Riot is "Power-Folk Americana" music from California's Central Coast. The duo blends everything from Folk to R&B into an infectious sound that could only come from two bearded men playing six instruments, all while keeping a full dance floor satisfied. Nordby and Motil captivate audiences of all-ages with catchy originals, and an arsenal of high-energy originally interpreted covers.

Bear Market Riot has played just about every winery, brewery, venue, and restaurant you could think of in SLO county including appearances at the California Mid-State Fair, Beaverstock Music and Arts Festival, SLO Brew, Vina Robles Amphitheatre, and Live Oak Music Festival. 

They were voted 2016's runner-up for "Best Band in SLO County" by the 30th Annual New Times Best of San Luis Obispo County Reader's Poll. In December 2016, the duo released their first full-length album "Power-Folk Americana", produced with funding they secured through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
