Art Exhibit: Maeve Croghan
Art Exhibit: Maeve Croghan

For the months of March & April our featured artist will be Maeve Croghan.  You may recognize her work from the label of our Late Harvest Zinfandel or the backdrop on the stage at Beaverstock!  We are proud to have her work return to the newest release of both our Late Harvest Zinfandel and Orange Muscat in addition to the walls of the Events Gallery.

Expressionist nature painter Maeve Croghan approaches the traditional subject of landscape painting with a unique vision.  "The process in my painting is essential to my art.  I usually sit on the ground, intensely observing and painting my subject.  There, I am able to gain a deep communion with my subject and its' environment.  This is essential for my art and me."

"My paintings are most often begun outside where I find a subject to paint, enabling me to experience and understand Nature at a very deep level.  I am particularly attracted to old forms of life; aged trees, vines and rocks seem to possess a knowledge beyond human understanding."

Art Exhibit: Steven Nakamura
Art Exhibit: Steven Nakamura

Steven Seizo Nakamura is a California based artist who just opened his new art studio, “Ancient Vine Studio”, in Long Beach. “Ancient Vines” has come to fruition through a period of growth, struggle, life changes, lack of sleep, and amazing friends. If you joined us at Beaverstock you may also remeber him from the Artist Grove!

Steven specializes in techniques that utilize Red Wine as a medium. He studied fine art and illustration at CSUN and has competed in several Plein Air competitions in Southern California. In 2009, Steven was enjoying an elegant meal and a glass of fine wine from Paso Robles with his wife, on their Lake Forest balcony. Steven, a Trader Joe's wine specialist, began describing this wine as "dark and inky." His wife Chris, asked what does that mean? Steven walked into his art studio and placed a brush into his wine glass and began the first strokes of his art career.

"Colors of Wine”, is a personal art journey and story. I explore the flavors of wine through it's complex pigmentation and concentration. The wine becomes as much of the story telling process as the subject and the artist. It is a passion for exploration and for living life, holding special memories and now a way to share them." Steven invites you enjoy his artwork with a splash of wine.

When Steven Nakamura began experimenting with the possibility of 'Fine Wine' as a medium for art, he was drawn to the brilliant colors of this organic staining compound. The paintings had a life of their own that was a continuation of the grape to the bottle to the painting. These paintings are alive with all of the subtle variations that you would expect from the uniqueness of each grape varietal, and style of winemaking.

Patchy Sanders
SLOFolks Indoor Concert
Patchy Sanders
Saturday, May 9th, 2015
Save Patchy Sanders 11/1/14 - 5/15/15 6
$20

Patchy Sanders visits Castoro for May's SLOFolk performance.  They are a genuine family band with folk roots . 
Doors open at 6:30pm, show starts at 7:30pm.
Tickets to this great show are only $20.

More about the band...

Patchy Sanders, a genuine family band, comprised of sisters Dani (banjo, harp) and Jacqui Aubert (vocals), their partners Ian Van Ornum (mandolin, bouzouki, guitar) and Dan Sherrill (guitar, banjo, mandolin), and good friends Sara Wilbur (violin, viola), Eric Jones (upright bass), and Alex Patterson (drums & percussion).  While some find it easy to characterize their music, others hesitatingly distinguish their style as noir-grass, neo-folk, neo-Americana, or simply Alternative. Influenced by the broader folk revival of the last 70+ years, the band’s three distinct songwriters draw upon diverse influences to bring forth a new, yet familiar sound.  

In the Fall of 2013, Patchy Sanders, hailing from performance arts Mecca Ashland, Oregon, released their debut album,  "& The Wild Peach Forest." The album was recorded at Loud Palace Studios in Weed, California under the guidance of famed producer Sylvia Massy.  The record breathes with true acoustic instrumentation from the traditional banjo, guitar, and mandolin, to the more mystical instruments like harp, pedal organ, and nyckel harpa.  These instruments provide a masterful foundation to the strong lyrical and vocal essence which characterizes Patchy Sanders' versatility. Massy sees great potential for the band, proclaiming "Patchy Sanders & The Wild Peach Forest" as a milestone in her luminous career (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty): "I've been waiting 14 years to make THIS record!"

Art Exhibit: Beti Kristof
Art Exhibit: Beti Kristof

For the month of August Castoro Cellars welcomes Beti Kristof of Las Vegas, Nevada.  She will be displaying her oil on canvas pieces in the Events Gallery.  Stop by anytime between 10-5:30pm daily to enjoy her artwork and sip on some "Dam Fine Wine"!

More about the artist...

Beti Kristof might best be called "Renaissance Woman".  She is a gifted artist who has displayed a level of mastery in art that is rarely seen today.  Her work is offered by leading galleries and is displayed in prominent private collections and corporate headquarters throughout the United States.

Raised in Southern California, Beti now resides in Las Vegas.  She is proud to be the daughter of Hungarian immigrants who escaped communism to raise their child in a free nation. At age 17, Beti was accepted to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. At a young age her talent was so apparent that she was invited to apprentice with two of  Europe's finest artists; Eva and Americo Makk.

While apprenticing in Europe, Beti’s talent gained her invitations to the world of European Art Masters, that most artists only dream of gaining access to ... Her passion for painting led her to the Sacchi Studio in Italy, where she developed her skills further. Beti was invited into the vaults of Pitti Palace, to study and sketch from the original works of Titan, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci, as well as other masters.  She also furthered her skills in life drawing, in the studios of Joseph Sheppard and Madame Simi, in Florence. Upon her return to the United States, Beti continued her training with the celebrated artist, Theodore Lukits.

Beti has demonstrated a wide range of artistic abilities. She has illustrated books; Tiko and the Tramp , Ted's Simple Truth, as well as The First Football ABC Pretzel Book - which she authored as well.
In 2007, Beti was awarded the highly coveted International “Muse Award” for Oil Painting.

Beti’s many public exhibits include: Nevada State Senate, Cirque du Soleil,  Mono County Museum, Hungarian Freedom Fighters Exhibit. She was awarded Public Mural placement for the City of Las Vegas, and created a commissioned sculpture for Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, as well as a commissioned portrait of former Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn and his wife.

Beti Kristof’s many styles of painting and sculpting reflect the depth of her formal training, and add to her well-deserved stature as one of the Southwest’s leading artists.

Beti  is involved with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, a national organization that comes to the aid and support of families with children who have cancer. Beti has experienced this first-hand, so a portion of the proceeds of THE FIRST FOOTBALL ABC PRETZEL BOOK are donated to Candlelighters. (We are pleased to tell you that she has a child who is a cancer survivor!)
