The Guides: 100 Years of Fun ! John Dyer artist in residence for Girlguides Centenary

John Dyer has been asked by Girlguiding South West England to complete an important new celebration painting for the centenary of the guides in 2010.

"We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the celebrated Cornish artist, John Dyer. John’s paintings are contemporary, vibrant, fun and full of life, qualities which could equally apply to Guiding as we reach our Centenary." 

Gill Slocombe Chief Commissioner.

John has created a triptych painting that celebrates the Centenary. Each painting focuses on one of the ages of guiding - The first painting features mainly Rainbows, the second Brownies and finally the Guides around a roaring camp fire. 

The paintings have been published and can be purchased as individual 
Art Posters and Art Cards in various sizes and prices.

The full triptych of three connecting paintings will be available as a special celebration 
print in an edition of 100 signed and numbered copies.

In conjunction with the paintings John will be running Guides100, an online art competition and exhibition for Rainbows, Brownies and Guides aged 16 years and younger with some great prizes. Have your painting of Guiding exhibited on The John Dyer Gallery !
