The Jersey ‘Paper Dragon’, a 3D sculptural installation, created by seven Jersey artists using the work of over 600 students from 22 schools and members of the wider public will be flying its way through the Jersey Library between May 15th – June 30th 2017 as part of a celebratory showcase entitled ‘Paper Talks’ across different venues in 2017.
The showcase will also include an exhibition of works created by each of the selected artists, Abi Overland, Anna Shipley, Ben Robertson, Joanna Brown, Karen Le Roy Harris, Lizi Hill and Maria Tarrant, at the Jersey Arts Centre’s Berni Gallery between May 8th – June 2nd 2017, made in response to the
‘Paper Dialogues’ exhibition staged by Jersey Arts Trust at the Town Hall in November 2016.
