New Allie Hyde Merit Award

Each month at the San Francisco Women Artists reception a juror selects outstanding artwork by 3 members and presents them with a Merit Award certificate.

We wish to designate one of these awards as the “SFWA Allie Hyde Merit Award” to honor the legacy of our friend and fellow artist Allie.

“Chick” by Allie Hyde

Allie’s commitment and contributions to the SFWA gallery through the years are significant, and we want to acknowledge her love of art, her having served on the Board of Directors, Artist Council, the Hospitality Committee and helping maintain a smooth operation of the gallery. She was a positive force in our midst, whose spirit and artistic creativity brought joy to all who knew Allie and saw her work. Her bold, vibrant art was something to behold and is sorely missed.

We plan to present the first “Allie Hyde Merit Award” during our March 7th reception celebrating Women’s History month and will be exhibiting one of Allie’s art works during the show. Please join us in honoring Allie.
