As artists ourselves, it is so important for us to promote the artists that have their work displayed in our petite Gallery.


The first artist is Adrian Baynes. Local to Long Buckby and owner of the Assembly Rooms, Adrian works in a hybrid world of art and design.

He describes his work thus: “I work mainly in charcoal & humour.I like my work to be ambiguous, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. Quantity is underrated. I have an idea. I try to ignore it, because it will cost money & eventually end disappointingly, but the idea keeps niggling. It wants to be realised. I give in, make it & am disappointed. And out of pocket. My main interest is drawing. I like black shading. The kind you get from charcoal or 3B conte crayons. The kind that stands out on the gallery wall & says “look at me! look at me!!
