The Windes Corporate Gallery Award

The Windes Corporate Gallery Award recognizes exceptional artists enrolled in the graduate level Studio Arts Program at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). Windes has a long-standing tradition of community involvement and the Corporate Gallery Award is intended to actively encourage and support these art students and their work.

Our awardee is Patrick Williams with his oil paintings “Orange City” and “Orange Sea.” Patrick’s paintings are visually stunning and intensely thought-provoking. His work has been displayed in a multitude of solo and group exhibitions in the United States, British Columbia, and England.

Patrick is a southern California native and currently lives in Long Beach. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and will complete his Masters of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting from CSULB in spring 2017. Parallel to his arts practice, Patrick is heavily involved in arts education. He is the director of the Digital Media Conservatory at the Orange County School of the Arts and an adjunct faculty member at Orange Coast College.
