Join us on Saturday, February 24th in celebrating the Seattle Erotic Art Festival with our prestigious membership program, the Art Activist Society.

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 year-round home of erotic art. Join us for an evening of performances, live music, a unique way to participate in the art and support the festival, and a sneak peek at the 2024 selected art.

Sneak Preview

One of the most exciting parts of this evening, is the preview of what SEAF2024 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, Sophia Sky, will reveal exciting details about 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.


As you arrive, you will be greeted with the music stylings of Evilstar on acoustic bass while an aerialist floats above Gallery Erato’s stage.

A delightful trio of performers for the evening have been curated by the unfailing fabulous Carson St. Clair. Hailing from Seattle, Carson is a multi-disciplinary artist, who first joined the community as a fetish and erotic art model, and has also added event producer, performance artist, and burlesque performer to her repertoire . She has been a performer at SEAF for 3 years on the main stage and as an interactive artist, and has also been a model on some of the art.

Khara Suzanne is the Mary Poppins of Kink, bringing together design, costuming, interactive performance, and a loving spirit of inclusion. A SEAF artist, volunteer, and performer, she brings us a SEAF Black Tie Affair exclusive character “From the Depth.”

With a passion for pushing the boundaries of both art and the human body, Meg Austin is a captivating performer who weaves an enthralling tapestry of elegance and daring. From the dimly lit cabarets of Seattle to the grand stages of international competitions, Meg captivates audiences with an irresistible allure. Her performances are a celebration of the human form, a fusion of strength and sensuality that leaves audiences spellbound. Prepare to be captivated by the irresistible charm and unparalleled flexibility of Meg Austin, as she invites you into a world where passion and skill converge in a singular, unforgettable performance.

Porcelain is a Seattle-based performer with roots in the dirty south of Raleigh, NC. Whether modeling, performing, or curating a concept, her obsession with detail and passion for her craft is apparent. To witness one of Porcelain’s live performances is to be the voyeur of someone’s decadent fantasy while her unapologetic movement on stage is said to inspire freedom and raw sensuality. With the unveiling of each hand-stitched, glistening layer, her genuine vulnerability surpasses the radiance of her bare naked flesh.

Nibbles and Desserts

This year’s amuse bouche is sure to delight with an assortment of savory and sweet treats. These delicious treats are perfect for your after-dinner nibbling pleasure. Our volunteer chef is carefully crafting the menu to please anyone’s palate while respecting our more sensitive patrons’ dietary needs. Many of these decadent bites are gluten-free and or vegan. Definitely make sure you eat a light dinner to have room to at least sample the treats of the evening.

Libations from our no-host bar will be on hand to help wash down your tasty treats, as well as a complimentary mocktail created just for the evening.

More ways to support the Festival

Buy raffle tickets for a chance to win baskets filled with sexy goodies from our sponsors, supporters, and donors. Raffle tickets will be on sale for $5 each, or $40 for an inseam or bust measurement in tickets.

This year’s raffle baskets are still being assembled and will feature art from previous festivals, as well as items and treats from donors and some of our wonderful sponsors. This year we are pleased to feature offerings from Hearthstone Massage, Seattle Fetish Ball, Emerald City’s Kings Ball, and MoPop.

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 you who enjoy costuming more than formal- or fetish-wear, we invite you to join us by dressing on the theme of “From the Depths”. Creative interpretation is encouraged. When in doubt, wear what makes you feel fancy or sexy.

Bonus points for incorporating a facemask into your outfit to protect our more vulnerable community members.
