With impending demolition the Four Winds Cafe is re-appropriated and celebrated in the work of local artists.
Symbolic of the archetypal sea side cafe, the british weather, the formica and the continual flow of local customers, the current exhibition seeks to document the four winds aesthetic and historical significance within the local arena.
The Four winds has been central to many throughout their experience and memory of the seafront gaining iconic status, and igniting a nostalgia for the great myth of the British summer.
