Corporate Gallery Award


Patrick Williams’ award winning artwork, “Orange City” and “Orange Sea” are oil on canvas paintings, both 40″ high by 60″ wide.

Windes has collaborated with the Student Arts Program at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) to create the Windes Corporate Gallery Award, which is presented semiannually to two graduate students in the program. This award recognizes exceptional artists enrolled in the graduate level Studio Arts Program at 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. By showcasing these artists’ work in a corporate setting, our hope is to bring awareness and appreciation of the cultural and creative contributions that artists make to our communities to enhance, beautify, and inspire.

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 throughout the United States, in 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.

Windes is pleased to congratulate Patrick on receiving this award.
