Event Details

Hear the stories behind Doreen’s paintings and the tale of their discovery, as Doreen and The Gentle Author discuss her work and its relationship with the East End.

For the first time, Bow Arts presents a retrospective of painter Doreen Fletcher’s work, curated by The Gentle Author. For twenty years Doreen Fletcher painted the streets of east London until, discouraged by lack of recognition, she gave up in 2004. Only a chance meeting with The Gentle Author of Spitalfields Life brought her painting to public attention in 2015. Often drawn to sites through personal connection or the chance to immortalise buildings or businesses before their demolition, this is a rare chance to hear Doreen talk about her work and the stories behind each painting.

Doors will open from 6pm, with the talk beginning at 7pm.

Tickets £3/5 (concession rate applies to under 18s, students, over 65s and Bow Arts artists)
