Australian Heritage Dancers
After 31 years of practice at the Annandale Neighbourhood Centre, the Australian Heritage Dancers treadded the boards in the upstairs hall for the last time on 9th December 2015.
"The Australian Heritage Dancers are a demonstration group, based in Sydney, specialising in the presentation of Australian social dance, from European settlement in 1788 up to modern times - recreating and preserving our country's traditional music and dance for the entertainment of audiences today. They recreate, both in dress and manners, what it may have been like living and dancing in Australia in the 1800s."...www.australianheritagedancers.org.au/index2.html, viewed 10 December 2015

Bruce Searle Kim Spooner 100's & 1000's at Annandale Galleries"THE TITLE of the exhibition is a reference to the miniscule decorative candies known as 100's & 1000's. They are a metaphor for the masses of humanity – each different and yet the same...bringing to mind the biblical reference that 'every hair is numbered...as is every grain of sand' (William Blake, Bob Dylan). Embedded in the works are notions about the human condition...happiness, melancholy, joy and suffering.
Each of the twelve works on display was executed in total collaboration. Half of the works may be identified by either BRUCE SEARLE'S or KIM SPOONER'S talent base. They were worked on together through constant discussion, revision and agreement of purpose over a period of twelve months.
The KIM SPOONER based pastels question the importance of figuration in contemporary art" and are somewhat joyful. The skill of an artist to conjure illusion of form, structure and colour when scaling up and working from life – in this case the model being an element as small as a 100 & 1000 piece of candy.
The charcoal drawings of faces on the flat coloured discs are dependent on the conceptual- izing what imagery depends upon. BRUCE SEARLE utilizes both the tools of a photo-media based artist as well as his roots connected to symbolism by making a reference to Odilon Re- don. This series of 'faces' also make strong commentary on non-objective art. They reflect the human condition of sadness, melancholy and loss but also reflect experience and hope.
Art-historical references in the exhibition are part of a broad, ongoing discourse as Redon's 'noirs' make reference to Goya's 'blacks' so the show references both historical and contem- porary issues in art. Both KIM SPOONER and BRUCE SEARLE are keenly aware of the art- historical continuum and both are continually adjusting their place in that discourse.
Bill Gregory, Annandale Galleries
Although the Exhibition 100's &1000's ultimately is about the human condition, a metaphor for
the countless masses of humanity, it is also informed by various diverse strands of art historical
discourse – the foremost of which is the rubric of non-objective/representational practice.
