Two years ago we curated and displayed a sculpture gallery at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival of touchable stone sculpture. The gallery was a huge hit and Cyra Jane has been invited back to the Festival as a Guest Curator for 2020. We are expanding to include other materials rather than just stone; the exhibit will be partially curated by yours truly and partially cherry-picked from sculpture submissions to the festival from artists around the world.
SEAF is the last weekend of April and is in the Seattle Exhibition Hall. It pulls in about 4,500 attendees each year and showcases over 200 works from regional and international artists. The gallery is open during the day and the evenings are spectacular events with performances and music and over a thousand people all enjoying the art and the conversations about the art. It is hands down one of the most interactive and exciting art shows I've ever attended.
If you want to participate, please send Cyra Jane a photo of the sculpture you'd like to submit. It needn't be figurative nor necessarily erotic. If it's fun to touch, that's the point! We blindfold people and have them guess what the sculpture is. Interesting textures and suggestive shapes, nice curves and abstract edges are all welcome. Bonus for sculpture that *is* erotic, though. :)
I'll be gathering submissions until mid-January and selecting between 8-12 sculptures total. Artists will receive a ticket to the event and their work will be in the festival catalog and eligible for the People's Choice and Festival Best of Awards.
