Pull out your togas, open Pandora's box and take in the sights and sounds of the fourth annual Carnality Ball, 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday at Oklahoma City Farmers Public Market, 311 S. Klein.
With the Greek theme for this year's event, guests are encouraged to wear costumes representing their favorite god or goddess. All three floors of the market will be utilized, with the first floor dedicated to vendors offering a range of items from adult toys to local art. The second floor is all visual artists; the third floor is VIP-only.
The adults-only event was created to give local artists a creative outlet, said Nicole Moan, an organizer. She said the Carnality Ball has grown into a huge success in its short life, with more than 1,800 in attendance last year.
Artists are encouraged to stay in their booths throughout the night, she said.
"I direct (artists) to get in their booth because I feel it is something that has really helped me in the past, learning how to sell your work instead of just making the work, because it is a different world than it used to be," Moan said. "You see this work and think, 'Wow, how does this stuff sell and mine doesn't sell?' Well, it is because the person who is selling a whole lot knows how to market themselves. They got to keep plugging away, but they also need to know all about that stuff as well."
Attendees must be 18 or older. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. VIP tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door. For more information, visit www.carnalityball.com. "LeighAnne Manwarren
