"If we judge objects merely according to concepts, then all representation of beauty is lost.

Thus there can be no rule according to which anyone is to be forced to recognize anything as beautiful." – Immanuel Kant, The Critique of Judgement (1790)

The theme 'open-ended' is asking artists for nothing. By asking for nothing, artists are invited to focus on the exploratory creation process. The exhibition will feature the artists' imagination and ask the viewer to embrace the visual. There are endless possibilities for the ways in which open-ended art can be created and viewed, hence nothing specific can be asked. 'open-ended' will bring the artists' creative process to the forefront.

Remarks by artists and staff at 5:15 p.m., light refreshments served.
