Spot and my Daddy is a founder and has art in the show,
of course I'll be attending SEAF again this year. Our
family has a table for the art auction and plans on spending
all the days of SEAF surrounded by art, artists,
beauty, free expression and sex-positive culture.
Seattle Erotic Art Festival 2006
The fourth annual Seattle Erotic Art
Festival held at Consolidated Works (500 Boren
Ave. North) in Seattle on March 24-26, 2006 will
display an expansive exhibition of contemporary
fine art that celebrates the diversity of human
sexual expression and the incredible creativity
with which artists approach the subject of
erotica. The jury and curators selected work
based on quality of execution, originality of
subject and depth of emotion from over 1,200
pieces submitted by 400 artists from around the world.
Doors open on Friday, March 24 at noon; Deities
of the Eros Costume Gala starts at 8pm. The
Festival’s many other offerings include a VIP

Little Red Studio, a gallery store

opportunities to attend films, lectures,
workshops and readings. Patrons will be able to

Last year, SEAF attracted over 4,000 attendees
and received significant media attention. Most
importantly, a large portion of the exhibition
and auction art at SEAF was sold (values ranged
from $100 to $7,000). The sales of prints and
small works in the Festival Store were also impressive.
SEAF was founded in 2002 by Seattle's Sex
Positive Community Center (SPCC) to promote
freedom of sexuality, speech and creativity
through the erotic expression of fine art.
Tables and seats are still available for
Saturday's live auction. Selected works will be
auctioned off by the esteemed auctioneer, Laura
Michalek. Food will be supplied by Hot Dish
Catering (formally Feeding Frenzy). You can
obtain tickets to the auction at Brown Paper
