Erotic Artists Wanted!

San Francisco’s Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo Seeks Talented Artists for Erotic Arts Festival, Oct 24 & 25. Qualified exhibits will be subsidized. All Artists to Keep 100% of sales!

Perry Mann’s 29th Annual Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo, the internationally acclaimed Celebration of Flesh, Fetish, and Fantasy, and - according to E! Entertainment TV - “The World’s #1 Wildest and Sexiest Party,” is putting out the call for erotic artists to participate in its Erotic Arts Festival, part of the “Exotic Erotic” weekend of themed entertainment. 30,000 people are expected to attend the 29th Annual Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo, scheduled for October 24 and 25 on Treasure Island.

To support and facilitate entry for artists, the Exotic Erotic Ball has arranged for the subsidy of up to $50,000 of exhibiting costs. Artists can qualify for between $500 and $1,000 apiece. In addition, there are no application and processing fees, and no sharing of commissions – all artists retain 100% of all their sales.

“I am hereby issuing an open call for all talented artists whose work skews toward the erotic, exotic, sexy, and bizarre to submit their work for consideration,” says founder Perry Mann. “The inimitably gifted and world-renowned Tim Patch, joining us all the way from Australia, paints exquisite masterpieces with a certain unmentionable part of his male anatomy, and Tim’s talent will be hanging out for the entire two day event. Additionally, legendary Penthouse and Playboy erotic photographer Ken Marcus will present a very sexy and scintillating installation. We are pleased to offer the Erotic Arts Festival as another way for us to celebrate and support freedom of expression.”

Categories sought include drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, wood, glass, metal, mixed media, ceramics, and the elusive or impossible to categorize. Performance art and oversized installations are welcome. Pyrotechnics are not permitted. Artists from everywhere may qualify to participate.

The two-day Expo is open Friday, October 24 from 2 PM to 10 PM, and Saturday, October 25 from Noon to 6 PM. The Ball opens October 25 from 8 PM to 2 AM. The Arts Festival is also open during the Ball.

Artists seeking information on exhibiting and obtaining subsidy should contact Emily Hansen at eroticartsfestival@me.com or 702-249-7555. The event Hotline is: 1-415-567-BALL (2255).
