Gallery Erato Opening June 7th

We are proud to announce that the Seattle Erotic Art Festival will have a year round presence at Gallery Erato! Gallery Erato will be open for the First Thursday Artwalk on June 7th, 2018. Pioneer Square is the home of the original monthly artwalk and we are excited for our first chance to be a part of this historic neighborhood’s tradition.
We will be showcasing some of the art from the most recent festival, including works by artists, Michael Rosen, and Jennifer Jigour. The Foundation’s permanent collection will also be on display with works by Stasia Burrington, Steve Jensen, Lewisa, and Sam Vaughan.

Celebrate Changing The World Through Art

Join us for a night celebrating the Seattle Erotic Art Festival’s prestigious membership program, the Art Activist Society.

Attendees will receive an exclusive preview of chosen art for this year’s Festival, as well as the opportunity to pre-purchase any art piece that strikes your fancy, guaranteeing you can take your favorite works home after the festival in April. During the night, art docents and jurors will be on hand to share information about each piece. Enjoy delectable appetizers while watching stunning performances curated by Seattle’s own Jesse-Belle Jones, Performance Director of the Festival.  Each performance is sure to astound and amaze, leaving you breathless for what is to come at the Festival.

This year’s special guests include the SEAF2018 jurors and curators, such as Luminous Pariah, and past festival artists including Midori! Read more about this event here.

Dress to impress in your formal, sexy, or fetishy finest. This year, Black Tie Affair has a cabaret theme, for those of us who prefer costuming to formal wear.

Members of the Art Activist Society receive free admission. Join the Society or renew your membership during the party and your entrance fee will be applied towards your membership.

Massage Night Goes On Hiatus

We are very sad to announce that tomorrow night’s Erotic Massage Night is cancelled.  Club Sapphire can no longer host this event on the second Sundays. This monthly event will go on hiatus until a new venue can be found.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to when we can begin holding this event again. Thank you for your understanding and support.
