Since 1968, the Marie Dyson Award has been presented to one of our members at the Annual Exhibition for a piece of work judged to be of outstanding merit by an invited assessor. Marie Dyson was described as “ of the Guild's brightest spirits... outstanding innovator, whose initiative and enthusiasm had in large measure been instrumental in transforming the nature of our society”. This Award was founded in her memory after her untimely death in 1967.

The next Marie Dyson Award will take place during our 90th Annual Exhibition "Reconnected" at The Old Fire Station Gallery, Henley-on-Thames, Fri 16th – Tue 27th July 2021
