November 11, 2012- December 10, 2013  - A retrospective exhibition of Merry's work was held. Gallery attendance records were broken as visitors spread the word of this unique show of hand made photographs.

 Exhibition - 45 photographs -  was held at the Sechrest Gallery of High Point University in High Point, North Carolina.

Ongoing -  The Merry Moor Winnett Scholarship is awarded each year to an art student at Guilford College (where Merry taught).

 Efforts to increase scholaship funds in her name are continuing. 


 Merry's Website -  November of 2013, the  website was launched as a tribute to an outstanding artist whose legacy needs to be preserved.
