EXHIBITION: tara bursey's zines + bookworks

A note from Toronto Zine Library co-founder Tara Bursey:

Hello all,

Just wanted to drop everyone a line about a show I'll have up this month. It's an exhibition of all the work I've done pertaining to my zine-making practice. In other words, the main component of the show will be original art- mainly drawing- that was eventually put into zine format. In addition to original art, there will be zines and multiples on display and for sale at the opening and throughout the show's run.

The opening will be Friday, February 15th, from 8-11pm. There will be a cash bar with cheap beer, great tunes and lots of yummy snacks. Please try to make it out for a drink!

...AND there will be an after-party of sorts at the Smiling Buddha hosted by Cheap Date DJ's Elaine, Cristine and Matt, who will be spinning 60s garage, punk, soul and rock'n'roll all night long. It should be an awesome time...don't miss out.

Hope to see you all there. See the following info for details...
