A Black Tie Affair

Sat, Feb 23 from 7pm - 11pm

This event has passed.

You are cordially invited to an exclusive soirée benefiting the Seattle Erotic Art Festival. We are pleased to host you at Gallery Erato, Seattle’s new year-round home of erotic art. Join us for an evening of performances, live music, exquisite food, a unique way to participate in the art and support the festival, and a sneak peek at the 2019 selected art.

Sneak Preview

One of the most exciting parts of this evening, is the preview of what SEAF2019 will offer. A slideshow of accepted and invited visual artists will be playing throughout the evening. Jurors and curators will be on hand to share stories about why particular pieces of art were chosen. The Festival Director will reveal exciting details of festival plans. Art Activists have the first opportunity to purchase visual art at the Black Tie Affair.  What better way to avoid the disappointment of seeing a red dot on the piece of art you fall in love with?

Art Docents will be on hand to answer questions about art and process sales. All art that is purchased at the Black Tie Affair will be available for pick up at the end of the Festival on Sunday, April 28th. Art Activists that cannot join us at the Affair will be provided an online gallery to preview the art.

Entertainment for the Evening

Performances curated by Jesse Belle-Jones, Seattle Erotic Art Festival’s Stage Performance Director, are sure to astound and amaze, leaving you breathless for what is to come at the Festival. Our Interactive Performance Curator, Aimee Ketola, is busy gathering up ambient artists to interact with you and bring more joy and performance to the event on a more intimate level.

More information coming soon!

Dress to Impress!

Our idea of “black tie” is more risqué than the average cocktail party, so feel free to wear those outfits you don’t normally get to pull out of your closet! For of those of your who enjoy costuming more than formal- or fetish-wear, we invite you to join us by dressing on a soon to be announced theme. Creative interpretation is encouraged.
