We are very happy to announce that artist Lizzie Cannon is the new Greenwich Maritime Centre Featured Artist.
Lizzie completed a B.Sc. in Geography at The University of St. Andrews, after which she re-focused her interest in human-environment interactions into her art practice. Since graduating with a BA in Textiles at Goldsmiths in 2006, Cannon has exhibited both internationally and in the UK. She was short listed for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2007, Art of the Stitch in 2009 and Jerwood Makers in 2014. Cannon engages with opportunities to work with museum collections and archives, undertaking the residency ‘Made in Bow’ with the Bow Porcelain Collection at Newham Archive (2013), collaborating with the Curator of Lichens at the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity, Natural History Museum, London (2011) and exhibiting at a ‘Behind the Scenes Event’ at the Horniman Museum, London (2009).
Lizzie will be exhibiting at the University of Greenwich later this year as part of the Featured Artist program and we will be sharing more details soon!

The Greenwich Maritime Centre would like to take this opportunity to thank our previous Featured Artist, Theo Crutchley-Mack for his time with us and all of his hard work. We wish him all the very best with his new exhibition and hope to have Theo back on campus in the next academic year to exhibit his paintings but in the meantime please do follow him on social media and check out his current and upcoming exhibition on his website: http://www.crutchley-mack.com/
