Good luck they say come in threes and I’ll agree since this is my third year exhibiting at the mighty Seattle Erotica Arts Festival (SEAF) and this year the judges have accepted three of my most popular photographs onto their hallowed walls for exhibition and sale.
2016 Festival will be hosted on April 22-24 at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall.
Tickets are on sale now from the SEAF Website.
The Seattle Erotic Art Festival is an experience unlike any other festival or gallery you have likely ever attended. Over the course of three days, a curated selection of some of the finest erotic art the world has to offer will grace the floors of the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, awaiting your perusal and enjoyment.
During regular festival hours, you are invited to view the art and daily entertainments, from poetry readings to pantomime to acrobatic displays. There is also the Festival Store, where you can often find prints by the artists featured in the festival as well as other unique items and annual Seattle Erotic Art Festival merchandise. In the evenings, the vibe changes from a gallery to sexy art party. The Late Night Festival is a sexy, fun time with DJs, performers, bartenders at the ready, and a fantastically energetic crowd.
The Festival art will engage you, titillate you, and make you think. Not every piece is to everyone’s tastes, but there is something there that will speak to you – and what doesn’t can lead to some fascinating conversations. Whether you are joining us for the first time and new to the sex positive community, or have attended these events for years – this festival is for you.
Looking for more tantalizing glimpses at what’s on offer for you this year?

“The Seattle Erotic Art Festival supports a vibrant creative community, promotes freedom of expression, and fosters sex-positive culture through public celebration of the arts.” -Seattle Erotic Art Festival Mission Statement
It began with a desire to showcase stunning erotic art. To create a place to celebrate, discuss and support pieces that were rarely seen in mainstream galleries and museums. We dreamed of sexy people in a lush environment devouring amazing art; of an event that joyfully encouraged people to be as open and expressive as they wanted to be. And we brought it to life.
The first Seattle Erotic Art Festival was produced in 2003 by the Sex Positive Community Center (now the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture). A jury of local artists selected hundreds of pieces of art that were enjoyed by more than 1,000 art patrons.
This year (Our 12th Anniversary) we return to the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, an amazingly beautiful venue, where we can expand our offerings in all Festival categories of art.
Come peruse our world-class visual art gallery and shop in our museum-quality Festival Store. Admire dazzling performances and engage with interactive installations. Enjoy our erotic short film exhibition and captivating literary art. Attend enlightening lectures, workshops, and art tours. And indulge in so much more at this spectacular celebration.
