Would you like to attend the very first joint children's party/funeral/art lecture?

Join Lawrence Portendorfer as he presents the life's work of artist Amelia Portendorfer and tries to give her the send-off she always wanted.

Learn about the mysterious Esmerelda Ticklekitty. See what a bloodstained field desk and the world's ugliest unicorn have in common. Be one of the first to discover the work of a truly distinctive artist.

Just don't let Lawrence hear you call it cute. Or neat. He'll explain why it deserves to be called a singular artistic achievement.

And hey - there will be cake!
