THE GREYFRIARS TROPHY FOR THE BEST WATERCOLOUR

THE JAN MURRAY TROPHY FOR THE BEST OIL PAINTING

Jan Murray was a great character within Greyfriars and also a member of the Art Society. When she passed away a memorial fund raised enough money to purchase an Indian Silver cup in her memory to be presented for the best oil painting. The cup was replaced in later years by an engraved glass trophy.
This was first presented in 1991.

To quote - It was intended to encourage experimentation and the expression of personality as well as technical competency in what is regarded as the picture of the year.
