Katie Blue standing with her red dragon sculpturePrepare to be in awe of the giant, almost fire breathing, Red Dragon and other creations by artist Katie Blue exhibited upstairs in the extended Ideas Gallery at Play Resource.

In Katie’s world anything can be transformed into Art: hundreds of everyday objects find a new lease of life.  Take a closer look at the dragon and you will see it is made up of thousands of discarded children’s toys!

The modern flotsam and jetsam of society is salvaged and reinvented by Katie.  The Dragon, originally commissioned by the Island Arts Centre for their Children’s Arts Festival, grew and grew with the contribution of several other artists who volunteered their time including Ben Allen, Frank Quinn, Bobbi Rai Purdy and Susan Scott. Along with Katie several of them are regular contributing artists to the Creative Paths Arts Programme.
