Theme: Wide open spaces, arms wide open, eyes wide open. Just feel all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love. But as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite. Wide open to attack, wide open to a lawsuit, wide open to corruption, wide open to failure. What kind of phantasy phrase is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore this idea of "wide open" in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
