Beatle’s starring role in fab quilt exhibition

Last spotted in Dingwall at the Town Hall in January 1963, a recreation of Ringo Starr’s face in fabric form can now be seen hanging in the window of Alchemist Gallery at 48 High Street Dingwall. 

The incredible, larger than life piece is the work of Dingwall textile artist Rosalie Furlong, whose quilt exhibition opens at the gallery this weekend and runs until 14th April.

Making an 'Abbey Road' style crossing from one side of Dingwall High Street to the other presents the viewer with an optical illusion, as the patchwork squares morph into a photographic like image.

Please take care on the road though, as this weekend the Snowman Rally is also in town!

A range of other amazing qulits by Rosalie can be seen in our upstairs gallery. Entry is free during opening hours (Mon-Sat 10am-5pm), and they are well worth a look.
