Please join me for for a tea party with complimentary sponge cakes at 3pm on Sunday 25th November at the Nunnery Gallery to celebrate the publication of DOREEN FLETCHER, PAINTINGS by Spitalfields Life Books prior to Doreen Fletcher’s retrospective which opens at Bow Arts on January 24th 2019.

We have commissioned celebrated cake maker Jackie Stern to bake a selection of delicious varieties of sponge cake for you to choose from.

Doreen will be signing copies of her handsome monograph and will be in conversation with The Gentle Author. They will be discussing her paintings of the East End which have justly won Doreen such acclaim in recent years and tracing the long journey to this auspicious moment.

DOREEN FLETCHER, PAINTINGS reveals the full breadth of Doreen Fletcher’s achievement for the first time, including the largest selection of her work yet assembled including many unseen paintings from private collections.

Doreen’s monograph has been published with the generous support of the following readers of Spitalfields Life:
