George Mallen - President Emeritus of CAS

Last night at the new BCS London headquarters in Moorgate we introduced the new artworks on display from the CAS50 Collection. We now have around 80% of the current works in the collection on the walls at the BCS. The new additions include works by Stephen Scrivener, Desmond Henry, Ernest Edmonds, Alex May, Brian Reffin Smith and Peter Beyls. This will now remain on show until the end of March when a new exhibition will be installed. Details to follow nearer the time.

The highlight of the evening was the naming of George Mallen - one of the original three founders of CAS in 1968 - as President Emeritus. The current CAS chair, Nick Lambert, presented George with a certificate and he seemed genuinely chuffed with the award! In the photograph above, George (centre) is flanked by his wife Sarah Mullen (left) and Nick Lambert (right). Additional photographs from the night, taken by Paul Brown, can be found on Flickr here.
