We are absolutely thrilled to be working with local Bonny Doon artist Tessa Hope Hasty as our 2017 Featured Artist! Tessa created "Fog Lifting" for the 2017 Festival and has donated the piece to the Bonny Doon Community School Foundation for sale in this year's live auction! Thank you Tessa for your inspiration and your generosity!
Like old vines of Bonny Doon, Tessa's soul is deeply rooted in our Central Coast landscape. Her artistry is inseparable from her life story: a 3rd generation Santa Cruz resident growing up surrounded by four grandparents and four great grandparents in a family with deep connection to nature, the simplicity of being receptive, and the delight of taking in a new adventure.
Tessa knows Davenport Landing as Ancestors' Beach, where many of her family's ashes are scattered and where walking in the sand or surfing transcends time, immersed in place. Tessa refers to her paintings as Soulscapes, moments/ experiences/ places that feed the soul. She makes her home in a cozy artist's cottage off of Martin Road adjoining the wide landscape of the Martin Fire and regularly holds open studios, displaying her works in the open air of a rambling garden. In "Fog Lifting" Tessa gifts us an intimate view into her connection to Bonny Doon. We can imagine no better artist to represent our spirit of community, connection, history and place as we come together at this vital fundraiser for Bonny Doon's school and children! Please explore Tessa's art on her website and by visiting her booth at the Festival.
