Located beneath Mark Hix’s restaurant Tramshed is the CNB Gallery. The current display showcases photographs by British artist Peter Newman. These are no ordinary photographs. Taken from a low vantage point, looking upwards, Newman captures cities in Hong Kong, France, the United States, Japan and the United Kingdom in a different yet playful perspective. These works are all for sale and will be hanging in this space until February 14th.

Hm what should I drink? Perrier? Alcohol? Tough question. Should I make my decision blindfolded? This seems to be the predicament of the man in the painting. While one hand is close to the green Perrier bottle, the other hand is even closer to the alcohol. I wonder what he will choose
I never dreamed I would be eating a chicken and steak dinner while staring at a chicken on top of a cow in a formaldehyde tank. But, at Tramshed owned by Mark Hix, the chicken and cow stand tall in the middle of the restaurant. A piece by Damien Hirst, this work of art reflects the food served. What an interesting way to pair food and art, don’t you think?

Located in the basement of Mark Hix’s restaurant Tramshed is the art gallery Cock N Bull. The current show, Untamed Company by artist Eve Spencer, explores nature through a grouping of hanging tapestries, paintings and installations. This experimental gallery space makes a visit to a restaurant famed for its Damien Hirst’s Cow and Chicken commission an interesting experience in art.
