Welcome to Annandale Galleries

Annandale Galleries opened in 1991 in a former Methodist Church built in 1860 that became a Masonic Hall in 1920. There are three exhibition spaces totalling over 240 square metres.

Annandale Galleries runs a schedule of prominent Australian contemporary and indigenous artists, as well as being the Australian representative of such international luminaries as Zadok Ben-David and William Kentridge.

William Kentridge Tapestries
Tapestries, New aquatint etchings, Film 'Sonnets'
In collaboration with Marguerite Stephens Tapestry Workshop
The tapestries show large, dark silhouettes the latest incarnation of the shadow figures William Kentridge has deployed for years against the patterns of old maps. That the tapestries improve greatly upon the collage maquettes is one of the show’s revelations.

The tapestries were made by the Stephens Tapestry Studio in Johannesburg, in close consultation with Mr. Kentridge. Marguerite Stephens established the studio in 1963 in Swaziland as a carpet and curtain weaving business. She moved it two years later to Johannesburg to focus on her craft’s artistic potential. According to the exhibition catalogue the weavers use the French Gobelin high-warp technique, working from the bottom up on a vertical loom with the cartoon of the weaving behind it.
