Featured Artist: Joe Schwartz
Featured Artist: Joe Schwartz

Joe Schwartz, documentary photographer, was born in Brooklyn, New York in1913 and passed away, a local resident in Atascadero, in 2013. The City of Atascadero’s Centennial celebration included and honored Joe Schwartz’s centennial year just one month prior to his death.

Joe’s black and white street photography depicts ordinary people, predominately children in interracial interactions, getting along. Joe’s mantra was, “We Can All Get Along,” thus the title of this exhibit.

One of the important aspects of his photography was that he focused on civil rights issues long before the active civil rights era. Joe had the compassion and concern, even as a young man, for the social issues of the time (1930s - 1940s in New York and 1950s - 1980s in California.) His camera lens was the means in which he expressed this concern for others and the injustices of society, as indicated by the title of his photo book for sale here, “Folk Photography, Poems I’ve Never Written.” His photographs were his poems to humanity.

He was a member of the legendary Photo League of New York where he was mentored by some of the great photographers of his time. He was also a Combat Photographer during WWII in Iwo Jima.

The newest Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall exhibits a selection of Joe’s works on their walls. His legacy will be shared with many.

Art Exhibit: Maeve Croghan
Art Exhibit: Maeve Croghan

For the month March and 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. View more work on her website by clicking HERE.

Maeve Croghan paints luminescent, color-filled, nature inspired oil paintings en plein air. After painting directly from nature, she slowly builds the works up in her studio, painting layers of oil paint on in the traditional old master method. During this stage of her process, she draws from her memory and feeling, not using photo references.

Maeve’s paintings are shown nationally and internationally. She has had numerous Museum showings of her work including the Manoogian Art Museum on Mackinac Island, Michigan, the Museum of the Living Artist, San Diego, Ca., the Anchorage Museum of Art, Alaska, Laguna Beach Museum and the Los Gatos Museum, California, Coos Bay, Oregon and Farmington, New Mexico, Museums. Her paintings have been chosen for shows in two museum exhibitions in Japan - the Matsumoto Museum in Matsumoto, and the Salt Road Museum in Omachi, Japan.

Maeve’s paintings are in prominent collections all over the United States and Europe.  They have been included in numerous juried art publications and books, including the ‘American Art Collector’, and ‘Artists of Northern California’. Castoro Cellars of Templeton, California uses her paintings to grace their award winning wine bottle labels.

 Come join us indoors for a night of soulful vocals and exquisite guitar playing from this "Dueling Duo".

Two powerhouse duos, one show featuring The Pam & Jeri Show and Nina Gerber & Chris Webster.

Chris Webster is a soul singer beyond genre. In the course of recording over 20 albums on her own and with others, she has drawn equally from classic R&B thumpers and gospel-grass prayers, from rockabilly rave-ups and singer-songwriter confessions.

Nina has a unique ability to completely free herself within an eclectic range of styles. Presented with folk, country, bluegrass, rock, or blues, she is able to fall into leads which have rare reverence for the true feeling of a song, always emphasizing taste over technical display. 

Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones of Blame Sally fame return to their original duo format, the Pam & Jeri Show, in a performance ranging from mournful ballads to sweet love songs to blazing acoustic soul. Pam plays percussion and guitar, Jeri plays guitar, bass, dobro, and mandolin, and their powerful voices blend beautifully to create a distinct and compelling sound. Their music has earned a spot in the rotation on San Francisco’s KFOG and Starbucks XM Café. Whether they’re covering songs by artists like Aretha Franklin and Rickie Lee Jones or playing their own exciting originals, this is a duo that knows how to entertain an audience and put on a satisfying show.
