Cody Brown

American
Practices in Kansas City, Mo

Cody Brown grew up in a paycheck-to-paycheck family on County Road 24, near a little farm town 30 minutes from Omaha, Nebraska.
Brown soon became a 19-year-old interior design student at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln when he started painting modern abstract pieces in his dorm room that he would load into his trunk to sell to designers in Lincoln and Omaha. The college student was soon taking meetings and working with clients on custom orders.
He graduated in 2009 and joined an interior design company in Lincoln, where he was relegated to “kind of a lackey boy,” he said. He wanted more.   Soon he quit to concentrate on studio art, producing art full time and attending trade shows to build his following.

Quick Facts:

Don opened his first recording studio in the late 80’s.

“When I make a photograph, I am looking for the exceptional moment hidden in ordinary events. I view my surroundings from a slightly different perspective through the lens; cutting through the familiar layers to find a story that might be overlooked by the casual observer.
I have always been drawn to black and white images. Although we live in a world filled with color, I tend to look through my lens with a grayscale palette. I find that the absence of color strips away distractions and brings clarity to an image.
While my photographs are meant to highlight the unexpected, I also strive to find elements that draw in the observer on a personal level. When someone looks at one of my images and can see a part of themselves, that is when it is no longer just a photograph but becomes art.”

Quick Facts:

Don was one of four artists commissioned by the Kansas State Lotto Commission to create a painting representative of the state’s 150th anniversary in 2011

Don Dane has been drawing from an early age and has been especially attracted to western and historical subjects. His art career began after visiting the Western Heritage & Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, OK. It was there he saw first-hand original artwork created by the finest western artist in America. It wasn’t until 2002 that Don decided to leave his corporate job behind and focus on being a full time artist. Dane’s medium ranges from watercolor to oil . He focuses mainly on western themed subjects but does not limit himself to just that. A self-taught artist, Dane uses reference photographs and sketches taken on location. He may spend days at a time gathering his research material from various locations and events. He especially likes spending time on working cattle ranches. “I find the American cattle ranches provide what I call a one stop shop for everything I look for in authenticity of the contemporary cowboy” says Dane.

Jill Huxtable

Practices in Kansas

Jill Huxtable grew up in Lawrence, KS and has been making art since early childhood. She took advantage of the excellent 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 media including acrylics, oils, alkyd resins, alcohol inks, watercolors, pastels, colored pencil and ink. Her mixed media series is acrylic on canvas mixed media utilizing texture, torn printed tissue paper and found objects, with layers of translucent paint for depth and interest. Some of her latest works are alkyd resins or alcohol inks on ceramic and glass tiles and encaustic mixed media. 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.”
“I paint what I lack the words to express.”
