“First up is an exhibition entitled Quirky Works by Christine Racher which features iconic Eastbourne landmarks and typifies her unusual and very distinctive style.

“She has an ability to depict buildings in a jovial form, which puts a smile on the viewer’s face.

“It is a style that has earned her many commissions and made her a sought-after artist.”

The exhibition can be viewed during the cafe’s opening hours of 8.30am–4.30pm Monday–Friday.
