Broken Arts Fair IV - March 3, 2012

Broken Arts IV  is coming to the Oshawa Public Library, McLaughlin Branch in Oshawa on March 3rd, 2012. The festivities will run from 11am until 5pm. It’s free admission AND all-ages!  

It will be a day packed full of fun things to see and do for the whole family. There are a number of musicians lined up to entertain visitors throughout the day.  Local authors will be reading from their works and the Broken Arts Zine Library will be on hand for your reading pleasure There will be local artists there selling zines, fashion, art, crafts, jewelry, photography CD’s and tasty treats. This year’s fair also includes a “Speciman” themed art exhibit. Really something for everyone!

Broken Arts is a group of visual artists, writers, musicians and zinesters from the Oshawa area. They play in bands like Chris & Cassy, contribute to magazines like OshWhat, and have their own projects too.   

Broken Arts was formed in July of 2009 to fill a void in the Oshawa art scene and to help bring together various artists and art groups. Their mission has evolved into one of promoting all-ages events and supporting youth engagement. Two years ago, a crew of indie artists took over the auditorium of the McLaughlin library in downtown Oshawa and a slew of new friendships and partnerships were born.  In a relatively short time the collective has accomplished much by organizing 24 concerts, 3 craft fairs, a festival, a number of public games and art workshops, and Oshawa’s first ever Buskerfest. On Saturday March 3, 2012 you can join in the celebration of all things creative with Broken Arts once again hosts an all-day art and music extravaganza.

If you are an artist, crafts person, musician or just a lover of the arts, I encourage you to check out their website, they’ve got cool stuff going on all the time. You can follow them on face book and twitter too!
