The Ingram Collection is a unique private collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art, the vision of media entrepreneur and philanthropist Chris Ingram. He started collecting in 2002 and since then it has become a constantly expanding collection which includes work by the major artists of the 20th century, and also explores the work of emerging artists of the 21st century, such as Aleah Chapin and Haroon Mirza. The Ingram Collection spans over 100 years of British Art and includes works in oil and on paper, sculptures,installations and videos. Chris is passionate about sharing the collection and wants as many people as possible to enjoy it.
The Joan Hurst Collection
Seventeen modern sculptures, including works by Jacob Epstein and Elisabeth Frink, have been given to The Lightbox by Joan Hurst through the Art Fund. The collection, which represents some of the most significant and influential artists in modern sculpture, is the first major gift to the Woking gallery.
The Heritage Collection
The Lightbox Heritage Collection is comprised of thousands of fascinating historical objects, many of which have local significance to Woking.
