What is your view of the Future? When you think about the future, where does your mind take you?
When we ask ourselves to think about what the future will be like, our minds wander in all sorts of directions. Are we looking at the future 5 years from now, 50 years from now, or 500 years from now?
Where does your mind take you when thinking about the future…perhaps to what the political climate will be next year…or ten years from now? What America will be like in the future? What our city will be like in the future?
Perhaps your mind goes to views of what our climate will be like? Will the oceans be the same…how about the land itself?
Maybe you think about your own life and family? Where you will be in the future…or your children? Maybe you think about what retirement will mean for you or the ending years of your life?
Maybe we think about flying cars and alien invasions…talking dogs and cats?
We are ready to see your visions of the future. Submit your art today!
Jill Huxtable – established Kansas City Artist
Jill Huxtable grew up in Lawrence, KS and has been making art since early childhood. She took advantage of the incredible art department in the school system there, and has won many awards over the years. After putting her artwork on the back burner while raising her children and working as a hairstylist, she has picked her art back up full time upon retirement. Since that time, she has shown in numerous galleries and art shows around the Kansas City area. She still takes advantage of the many art classes available and attends drawing workshops as her schedule permits, “always a work in progress as is my life”. Being creative is not just a part of her core being but also a form of escape. She works with a variety of medias including acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels, colored pencil and ink. Her latest series are acrylic on canvas mixed media utilizing texture, torn printed tissue paper and found objects, with layers of translucent paint for depth and interest. Much of her artwork finds inspiration in nature and the beauty of the human form.
“My art is something that emerges from within me, an inner desire to create and express myself.”
