Pop artist Sir Peter Blake and the Modfather Paul Weller were both on hand as The Lightbox art gallery in Woking officially launched its latest exhibitions, Snap, Crackle and Pop and Town Called Malice, Stanley Road Revisited.


Vintage and antiques expert Katherine Higgins, who curated the objects in the Pop Art exhibition, introduced Sir Peter Blake, who by the late fifties had become one of the most prominent British Pop artists (he is perhaps best known for designing the album cover for The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, in 1967).


Snap, Crackle and Pop: British Pop Art meets the High Street in the Swinging Sixties runs until Wednesday September 28 and explores how the worlds of art and consumerism were united for the very first time.


Meanwhile, Town Called Malice, Stanley Road Revisited: Photographs of Paul Weller runs until Sunday September 25 and features portraits of the Woking born, rock legend, Paul Weller by his favourite photographer, Lawrence Watson.
