A piece of Northamptonshire’s history

Primrose Gallery was born in Northampton back in 1999, when owner Neil was first picture framing in his garden shed in Primrose Hill. Once customers' work was completed, it was hung on the wall, alongside a few pieces that were for sale. This soon became known as 'Primrose Gallery' to the neighbourhood clients and represented well known artists such as Melissa Dring PS, Michael Little, and Martin Taylor.

In 2001, we opened a small art gallery in Derngate in Northampton town centre and swiftly gained a superb reputation for stocking original artwork, whilst offering high quality picture framing. The range also included original printmakers' prints, paintings, and a range of quality studio ceramics.

Sadly, due to events beyond our control, the gallery closed down in 2006. Four years later, we re-opened in 2010 in Kingsthorpe and then in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, in 2012. When the lease in Kingsthorpe came to an end, we finally got the opportunity to move out of Northampton - into the lovely market town of Thrapston - and have not looked back since.

Come and visit us soon - we’re in the middle of the High Street.

Bringing the art to you

At Primrose Gallery, we appreciate that purchasing fine art and original paintings can be quite a decision, and one often best chosen when your family or colleagues are around. So, to make the decision easier we offer home consultations – bringing pieces, or a selection of works, to the comfort of your own surroundings. This way, you can see how things look in-situ, check sizes and, most importantly, see if the artworks suit the surroundings as well as how it is to live with the pieces in the space. Moreover, all original artwork for sale can be collected, delivered or shipped internationally.
