Breakfast & Boats at The Acacia

A Worthing artist celebrated the great British seaside, and bed and breakfasts in particular, with an exhibition at The Acacia guesthouse & gallery which ran throughout 2003.

Sheila Guyatt's show, Breakfast & Boats, included views of the beach, boats and the breakfast table all in her unique, illustrative style. As well as quirky paintings and drawings, the exhibition featured MDF cut-outs, including a cheeky ship's cat! The work was on show in The Acacia's Breakfast Room, and perfectly complemented the room's 1950s seaside style.
