Jun 7, 2018 6:00pm - 9:00pm talk/event
Join us for the final late night opening of Raw Materials: Textiles – a last chance to explore the industrial history of the River Lea through the raw material textiles.
Resident artist Freya Gabie will join us to talk about her three works in the exhibition, each of which examines a different part of this rich fabric of history: jute, black mourning crepe and the dye / explosive TNT. Gabie’s conceptual approach draws out the poignant narratives behind the research uncovered in the project.

DOREEN FLETCHER : A RETROSPECTIVE. CURATED BY THE GENTLE AUTHOR
Jan 25 - Mar 24, 2019
Private view Thu Jan 24 6pm - 9pm
Bow Arts presents a retrospective of works by painter Doreen Fletcher, curated by The Gentle Author.
 
Doreen Fletcher’s atmospheric urban landscapes have only recently captured an audience, when the discovery of her paintings revealed a distinctive vision of the changing capital. For the first time, the Nunnery Gallery will bring the majority of her work back under one roof, in the home of their making – the East End. The works reveal the drastic changes of east London’s streets across just three decades, remembering the businesses long forgotten and the buildings that have since been knocked down. A superb colourist, she applies her rigorous technique to recording the drama of the city in compelling and authoritative images.
