A spokesperson said, “Beach Art, is a new art house book for the Bermuda market. It has just been published by Nicky Gurret with the first book having been delivered to the The Bermuda National Library and now available at the Bermuda Bookstore, Bookmart at Brown & Co and Masterworks.

“The book is a compilation of beautiful photos of beach art.”

It is a painting on the beach where the area between high tide is the canvas and the paint brush is a rake.” The book elegantly, displays photographs of many of Bermuda’s iconic beaches adorned with beach art accompanied by thought provoking quotes about the sea.”
