2024 Wharf-to-Wharf Race Poster

“Ode to the Capitola Wharf”

by Tori Schweyer

This year, $1 of every sale will be donated to the Beautification of the Capitola Wharf.

Tori Schweyer, a Santa Cruz native, has been creating art for as long as she can remember. She earned her BFA in Illustration at School of Visual Arts in NYC in 2013, where she discovered a passion for children’s book illustration. Recently, Tori illustrated the book Moments in Nature From Around the World, written by local author Brenda Dodson, (available on Amazon).

Tori’s love for the natural world shines through her spirited, narrative illustrations, which often feature a collection of delightful creatures. She has always been most interested in drawing complex, detailed scenes and has developed a style that marries her love of drawing with the vibrancy of paint.

Tori Schweyer, Artist

We feel proud to introduce you to this year’s talented artist, Tori Schweyer. We were captivated by her talent when she brought in multiple watercolors that she did for a children’s book. When considering the making this year’s poster, an homage to the Capitola Wharf, she was the first to come to mind.

We could not be happier that she “got” the concept of the split screen and executed it with such a happy feeling! The runners are crossing the finish line, the wharf is rebuilt above, & the marine life, (including 841 & her pup) are frolicking in the water below!

It depicts the end of our fun, local race from a rare viewpoint

Tori’s original 14 3/8 x 21 5/8 watercolor will be at the gallery for viewing, as well as at our booth at the race’s end.
