We were greatly saddened to hear recently of the passing of Mrs Jay Gordon Smith who has so generously supported the Society in recent years. We are proud to continue to offer the W Gordon Smith and Mrs Jay Gordon Smith Award in their honour. W. Gordon Smith was Scotland on Sunday’s art and theatre critic and columnist for many years during which he contributed to the progress of the arts in Scotland and this award celebrates both his life and his lifetime’s work by supporting artists in Scotland.
