Exhibition on point
At the opening of the ‘Pattern’ exhibition at Goolwa’s Signal Point Gallery were artists Ian de Gruchy,
Ann Newmarch, Polly Hollyoak, Kari Bienert and artist and curator Annabelle Collette.
PHOTOGRAPHS from 1870 to the
present depict the Onkaparinga
Woollen Mill in the heart of Lobethal.
The Mill in Focus – Then and Now
exhibition features more than 60
photographs, including images from the
early days up to its closure in 1993.
In contrast, six Hills photographers have
captured aspects of the Mill as it is now.
Exhibition curator Anne Griffiths said
the Mill had nurtured the town and its
community, given it economic purpose
and strong social connection.
“The Woollen Mill will always be
fundamental to the identity of Lobethal,”
she said. The exhibition was opened by
Gavin Blake, director of the Centre for

STUDIES in German took an unexpected turn
for Macclesfield resident Laura Clemow, who
will be performing for the fourth time this year at
Ms Clemow will be performing as part of Bavarian
dance group Bund der Bayern’s annual appearance at
the festival which will run on January 29 and 30.
The former Mt Barker High School student was
introduced to Bund der Bayern in 2011 through the
Adelaide University German Club – and she hasn’t
looked back since.
Ms Clemow, who first performed at Schuetzenfest in
2013, said seeing the crowd’s reaction to the upbeat
performance is one of the best parts.
“I love the reactions we get from the crowd – they get
quite into it” she said. Experience is not a prerequisite
for joining the group, and the girls’ role, especially, is
not too hard to pick up, she said.
The group, which focuses on a type of dance known
as ‘schuhplattler’, was established in 1959 by Heinz
Brueckner and has since performed at locations
including the Sydney Opera House, and internationally
in Malaysia and PNG.
Group leader Reinhard Struve said the group had
around 30 active dancers of varying ages and was
“always looking for new members”.
The next trial sessions for new dancers will be held
on the February 10 and 13 at the German Club in
Sarah Lee (left), Laura Clemow, Julian Buchelerhans and Reinhard Struve will perform at
Schuetzenfest this year as part of Bavarian dance group Bund der Bayern’s annual appearance.
