For the month of October Dean and Deb will be displaying their pieces in the Events Gallery.  Stop by the Tasting Room to sample some Dam Fine Wine and view these breathtaking works of art.  Open for viewing daily from 10am-5:30pm.

Dean Crawford

Dean started working at two Community Colleges in Southern California before finishing his career of 35 years at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, retiring in 2007.

He worked as a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Community College Instructor in the Graphic Arts field.

After retiring, Dean picked up his camera again, digital this time, and started capturing scenes from our beautiful Central Coast. He joined the Paso Robles Art Association (life member) and started to teach Photography in the Adult Education Program with the City of Paso Robles.

After winning many first places and awards of excellence for his images, it was time to show his work in a gallery situation.

In January 2017, Dean and Deb Hofstetter, joined forces and rented Studio 4 in downtown Paso Robles, with the group of artists at the Studios on the Park Galleries.

They continue to show their work together and separately in San Luis Obispo County. Dean continues to teach with the City of Paso Robles and is an active member of the PRAA Photo Guild.

Deb Hofstetter

I am a “light” photographer with an artistic style and a contagious enthusiasm for
capturing the perfect shot in the perfect light. Commercial wine bottle photography and
landscape photography/digital art are my strengths while I continue to practice portrait
photography for couples, maternity & newborns and seniors. I like diversity.

Simply put “I love following the light and capturing all its beauty and glory through
photography.” My landscape photography and digital art is on display at several wineries
and restaurants. I’ve done website and magazine work for local wineries and continue to
create wine art in my private studio. My work has been featured on the cover of “Vino”
and will be in an upcoming issue of the Paso Magazine.

In Paso Roble’s downtown “Studio on the Park” I share Studio 4 with fellow
photographer Dean Crawford and painter Sharon S. On the first Saturday of every month
we kick off a new show featuring a new topic.

I am based in Paso Robles and serve San Luis Obispo County where I was born and
raised. The area we live in is filled with beauty and it has always sparked my love of art.
We see beauty and light everywhere and it’s exciting and fulfilling to share with you my
“visions” through the art of photography.

Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer joined forces in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Mandy Fer is unafraid to dominate the stage for an extended guitar solo, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. Dave McGraw's emotional songwriting riffs on natural elements of the world around him. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rainforests of Washington. 

Together, their exceptional vocal harmonies coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world. The pair has honed their skills touring extensively throughout the US and Europe, sharing stages with fellow troubadours including Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Kelly Joe Phelps, Birds of Chicago and many others.

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 by Javed Kabob

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.

The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic group of three sisters, whose impressive array of talents have set them apart as one of the most refreshing and compelling acts in Celtic-roots music today.  The sisters' unpredictable and theatrical flair brings a youthful splash to the time-honored tradition of Celtic folk music, bridging the gap between classical, folk, Celtic, world and roots influences with a sunny, optimistic style that has been described as "beautifully arranged, melodic-minded Celtic folk-pop."
