The Lightbox, the award-winning charitable arts and heritage organisation in Woking, is holding an online art auction, running up to July 16, to raise money to help it reopen to the public.

Sean Henry, Seated Man No.3, a preparatory sketch for sculpture of the same name and year, 2016. Estimate £50 to £2,000

The costs of reopening are considerable as extra safety precautions need to be put in place to adhere to government guidelines, including additional members of staff to monitor social distancing.

The Lightbox Charity Auction includes a wide variety of paintings, drawings and photographs, generously donated by supporters of The Lightbox, including drawings by internationally renowned sculptor Sean Henry and prints by photographer Anne-Katrin Purkiss, who exhibited at there earlier this year.
