This Saturday is a special date.. not only is it February 29th, a day that only comes around every four years, but it is also the date of FAILURE PARTY! Hosted by our very own Laundry Room Collective at the Lake Country Art House, this party celebrates failure in the funnest way possible.
Do you like art?
Do you like snacks?
Do you feel a degradation of self worth through your artistic creations and feel an oppressive suffocation stemming from the inevitability of failure? PERFECT. This is the event for you!
Join the LaundryRoom and the Lake Country artist community on February 29th at the LCAG Art House in a participation based art party exploring failure! Come between 6 and 10 PM to eat snacks, make art, discuss failure, join the art critique, be entertained by musical performances from DJ Willie Four Milli and NAVvv, or even share your own story at the open mic.
Failure is inevitable. It comes to everyone in every situation and in infinite ways. Why not embrace it? What does this look like for an artist? Failure Party is a free event for anyone and everyone is welcome!

Our monthly art presentations at Lake Country Manor senior care home, continue this Thursday October 3rd at 2pm with graduate Moozhan Ahmadzadegan presenting on Eileen Agar, an early Surrealist artist from Britain.
Over the course of a seven decade long career as an artist, Eileen Agar is most notable for her place in the surrealist movement of the first half of the 20th century. Despite the variation of style seen in her work, Agar is primarily associated with the surrealist movement in Britain. This can be contributed to her early collages and sculptures, but her paintings take on a rather different approach. While still maintaining some surrealist elements, Agar’s work quickly moved out of the realm of surrealism as her artistic practice progressed throughout the century. By the time she published an autobiography of her life at the age of 88, she was challenging the ideologies of surrealism, the very movement that gave her precedence as an artist.
You are invited to join this free event in the comfortable surroundings of the Lake Country Manor's dining lounge
