Felicity Powell (1961-2015)
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Felicity Powell. Felicity was a talented artist, who first become involved with BAMS through the Student Medal Project when she was a lecturer at what was then Falmouth College of Arts. Her medals Loves’ Watch and Millennium Medal were issued by BAMS in 1999 and 2000 respectively. She joined BAMS Council in 2002 and remained a valued member until her death. Felicity co-curated the British Museum’s 2009 exhibition Medals of Dishonour, which subsequently travelled to the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. Her exhibition, Charmed life: the solace of objects, was at London’s Wellcome Collection in 2011-12. She will be much missed.
