our local featured artists

We are blessed to be among breathtaking vineyards and numerous farms and ranches, but Santa Barbara Wine Country is also home to an abundance of talented artists. We have the pleasure of hosting the work from many of these artists at the Los Olivos Café.

From November 5th through January 7th, artist Marilyn Dover Benson’s work will be on exhibit at the Los Olivos Café. Marilyn is British-born and educated and after traveling extensively world-wide, now considers the beautiful Central Coast of California her home.  A self-taught artist, she began painting 11 years ago.  She is the President of the six-member Brush & Palette Art Group.  She commenced staging solo shows at wineries up and down the coast, and the feat of which she is most proud is selling 22 PAINTINGS IN ONE DAY AT FIRESTONE WINERY!  She is the recipient (four times over) of the “Best of the Best” award at the annual Grapes and Grains event in Santa Maria, California. Her art is available for purchase during this time.
