POP QUIZ! A wall of magnetic colours has taken over the Spencer Gallery for the most recent Art Rental & Sales Show and Sale: Synchronicity, featuring sculptural works by special guest artist, Dale Roberts. See if you can 'Guess Who' these familiar faces are.

Local to Victoria, Dale Roberts creates 2D and 3D portraits of notable, if not notorious,  figures with needle felted wool. His painstaking work can take months, even years to create, and the end results are playful and incredibly detailed homages.
