Art & Performance

We are always excited to discover new art and performance and encourage those interested in participating in future events, please let us know here.


Visual Art

High quality art wanted for participation in The 2023 Edwardian Ball at the Regency Ballroom, February 3-4th in San Francisco.


Now accepting applications in drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, assemblage, collage, interactive and installation media, in all sizes.


Works must be original. Style reference points include Victorian, steampunk, retrofuturist, gothic, vaudeville, circus, and of course our muse, Edward Gorey.


Think: Bones, taxidermy, natural sciences inspired, unusual or vintage knick knack, beauty, corsets, humorously dark narratives, inventive machines, decorative filigree, fairy tales, witchy wonders, art nouveau, art deco, romantic antique, carney oddities, carnival clowns, strange parades, mystical mechanics, spooky spiritualism...


The Color Palette: When thinking about the color palette, we lean toward illuminated dark elegance, warm hues and metallic tones, shadow and light.


We are seeking performers of all stripes - music, dance, theatre, circus… the elegant, odd, curious, and unusual… for stages, ambient performance, and immersive environments. Please share with us what you would like to do at The Edwardian Ball!

Thank you for contacting the Edwardian Ball!
