Special Art Exhibition of Canal Work

A special exhibition showcasing the best works by national and local artists inspired by the Basingstoke Canal is coming to The Lightbox gallery in Chobham Road, Woking between Tuesday 22nd February and Sunday 6th March.  The exhibition will run for two weeks and feature pieces from Brenda Ord, Charles Duncan Twigg and Christopher Wright to name only a few local artists, popular painter and printmaker Ian Mowforth, acclaimed plein air artist Alan Streets and Cranleigh artist Mark Weighton, whose sculpture Burnt Wood was produced for COP26.

Replacing Kitty

The exhibition forms part of the Basingstoke Canal Society’s fundraising campaign to replace its ageing canal community trip boat with a new solar-electric cruise boat including the installation of charging points along the canal to secure an eco-friendly future for the waterway.

Every artwork is available to buy

Every artwork on display will be available to buy via our bidding website with all proceeds going towards the new, more accessible and sustainable Kitty II.


The exhibition is open from 10:30am-5:00pm weekdays and Saturdays and 11:00am-4:00pm on Sundays.
