‪Where else might you find, in addition to paintings and sculptures from its permanent collections, two such diverse temporary exhibitions as the mind bending optical wallpaper of Bridget Riley (b.1931) and the entirely figurative work of Hubert Arthur Finney (1905-1991). The former is a nonogenarian rarely out of the limelight; the latter’s exhibition rightly described as ‘out of the shadows’. Not exactly contemporaries as Finney could have been of the same generation as Riley’s father. What a variety of his work on display from a wistful self-portrait to a reclining nude through aerial shots of airfields to pastoral scenes. Riley’s work, however, feels like intense and myopic variations on a single-theme of creating mind-bending patterns. Downstairs a bookshop and small cafe.‬

‪A smart non-profit local gallery half an hour by train south of central London. Woking itself is a not especially interesting town but a load of regeneration money has made the centre a sociable place with plenty of independent shops and public spaces. The Lightbox is probably the best reason for strangers to visit the town and, though it’s not as stylish as the World Wildlife Fund’s Living Planet building next door, it’s a welcoming and family-friendly three storeys of exhibition and study space with a small cafe downstairs, of which more anon.

The top floor has periodic displays from the Ingram Collection of modern British works donated by a local entrepreneur and philanthropist. On show at the moment are a number of moderately interesting small works by artists such as (predictably) Dame Elizabeth Frink and (inescapably) Lynn Chadwick. However, the current star turn - on the second floor - is a good display of paintings and sculpture by Michael Ayrton, the not especially likeable but very talented mid-twentieth century artist who fell out of favour so quickly after his death that his last retrospective was almost fifty years ago. His table-top bronzes, generally around Classical Greek themes of the Minotaur and Icarus are very powerful, often threatening, and sometimes in-yer-face aggressive. His works on paper have echoes of his contemporaries, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland, both of whom went on to much greater renown, and of his younger friend John Craxton, who would also have done so had his love letter to Ayrton not been rejected, a rejection followed shortly by Craxton’s suicide. Ayrton the artist deserves rehabilitation, even if Ayrton the husband doesn’t, and this exhibition has done a real service to the artist’s memory. You’ve only a few days left if you want to catch it though because it finishes in early August, to be replaced by a new exhibition.

By the way, don’t let your visit culminate in a meal in the little cafe downstairs. We aimed to have a light lunch and, from a modest menu, we chose soup of the day (something vegetable with copious amounts of ginger) with ciabatta, and a Brie and onion panini, plus two lattes. The lattes were luke warm; the soup needed dollops of salt, its accompanying ciabatta having been replaced by a soft white bread roll; and my Brie and onion panini had become a toastie of halloumi and tomato. With typical British reluctance to cause offence to waiters I told her it would be fine. It wasn’t. Not only was it nothing like what I’d ordered, but this “toastie” appeared to have been microwaved, so that it was soggy like a warm sponge.

On today’s showing The Lightbox deserves to succeed. Its cafe really doesn’t .‬

‪We started off with coffee and croissant and banana cake ( a real wow!) and then viewed the two current exhibitions ,,,,,,,,,intereresting art designs from local school students.......but the other was not appealing.,,,,,rather dour.

It pays to be a member as admission prices steep.‬

‪Post-lockdown Woking’s Lightbox has re-opened with a multiplicity of exhibitions in addition to the permanent local history gallery on the first floor. It still has the row of sculptures in the ground floor lobby, a bookshop and cafe with an outside terrace, otherwise exhibition space. Local artists in the small room on the ground floor, the Ambassadors’ Room open on the first floor for the first time to display photographic works by UCA Farnham; on the top floor entrants to the Victoria Place Art Project; in the high ceilinged first floor gallery a major exhibition of the works of MIchael Ayrton (1931-75) who was equally comfortable as a painter of classically themed paintings as sculpture. There’s even a hardback guidebook produced especially for the exhibition. Pity I was, according to the sttendant, the only visitor he’d seen all day.‬

‪Lightbox has put on some good albeit small exhibitions in the past. It started with free access but then went to an annual charge, which was reasonable. However now they charge daily and at the same rate as the previous annual charge. This makes visits now unaffordable for many. Its a shame but at these current rates it isn't really worth it anymore.‬

‪#Raphael it’s like getting a quiet education. Artists see things that art historians and other art professionals simply won’t see.

For me, art is a form of meditation. Nothing carries you away and clears your mind like visiting art galleries. ‬

‪Lucky the burghers of Woking to be the object of the philanthropy of business magnate and football club owner Chris Ingram in the shape of The Lightbox, a showcase for a museum devoted to both Woking’s history and Ingram’s rather remarkable collection of around 600 works of 20th century British art. So extensive is his collection that it can provide works for both of his current exhibitions, the smaller on the top floor of watercolours; the larger on the first floor of works by women artists. The watercolours are by many of the greats in British art, including several works by the likes of Edward Burra, John Minton and John Roberts. Some impressive nudes by Sir Robin Philipson and Jacob Epstein. Apart from some Elisabeth Frinks nothing I think by any female artist as these are reserved for the gallery downstairs dominated by a mobile of revolving legs. Nice to see a glorious Barbara Rae landscape amidst a rather geometric Barbara Hepworth and a couple of cartoonish Celia Pauls. As usual some gems along the external corridors including a newly acquired John Bellany, all of which have commentaries by visitors inspired by them. Elisabeth Frink sculptures still dominate the downstairs space near the small exhibition room currently displaying photographic records of local families in lockdown. A cafe and bookshop are also still functioning.‬

‪We have been going to many of the art exhibitions and have thoroughly enjoyed them. The history of Woking is also well worth a visit which is on the top floor.‬
