“I am grateful to Rick Scorza for introducing me to the fascinating world of medals, and for being one of the initiators of this exhibition . . .”

Works in Bronze and Other Media by Contemporary Medallists.
An exhibition organised by Jean-Luc Baroni in collaboration with The British Art Medal Society, c/o Department of Coins and Medals, British Museum

“The British Art Medal Society (BAMS) is grateful to Jean-Luc Baroni for suggesting this exhibition and for hosting it in his London gallery; also for generously agreeing to award prizes for three of the medals. The British Art Medal Society was founded in 1982 to encourage and develop the practice and study of medallic art, and exhibitions such as this provide the society with a sure way of furthering its aims.

We are also grateful to Rick Scorza for helping to make the exhibition a reality. Finally, we are grateful to the artists for contributing such compelling works”

“I am grateful to Rick Scorza for introducing me to the fascinating world of medals, and for being one of the initiators of this exhibition. I am equally grateful to Philip Attwood, and to Linda Crook and Janet Larkin for curating the exhibition. I also wish to thank the British Art Medal Society for endorsing my proposal to surrender all proceeds to the artists.

Last but not least, my thanks also go to the artists for accepting to show their work in my gallery, and for contributing to making this exhibition so interesting by showing such a wide variety of medals”
