exhibit judge

Todd A. Williams, OPA

After studying painting and illustration at the Kansas City Art Institute, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Williams went on to be an in-house Senior Artist/Designer for Hallmark Cards and Day Spring Cards for the next ten years. Today, Todd excels in his ability to paint all subject matter using spontaneous brushwork and creative virtuosity. Most of the time he can be found painting en plein air. Through this discipline he has found his own recognizable voice, which is now becoming his signature style. Williams' work has been exhibited across the US in gallery, museum, and invitational exhibitions, such as the Gilcrease Museum, the Great Plains Art Museum, Montgomery Museum Of Fine Arts, "The American Miniatures Show", Settlers West Gallery, The Maynard Dixon Museum, Cincinnati's Great American Artists Exhibition, and the Oil Painters of America National and Regional Exhibitions where he has been honored with the prestigious status of Signature Member. In May of 2009 he won an "Award of excellence" at the National OPA Exhibition in Santa Fe, NM., and in 2008, he won the "Second place Award" from the American Impressionist Society in their National Exhibi-tion at Palm Desert, CA. In the July/August 2012 Plein Air Salon Competition he was the winner of the top prize - "First Place Award" selected by San Francisco gallery owner John Pence, who described Todd's work as "uniquely impressive," with an "an immense impact " Pence said, "There is superb atmospherics in the epic subject and view, and his paint-ings are full of delicate details." In 2010 he won the "Founders Award" from the American Impressionist Society in their National Exhibi-tion. The International Artist Magazine featured his work from "Vienna and Prague" in their Dec./Jan. 2008 issue. In Sept. 2005, Todd had a featured article in the Fine Art Connoisseur. Also in 2004, he received national and interna-tional recognition for his art through a feature article in Southwest Art and International Artist Magazine selected him for "Master Painters of the World" in the United States Showcase.
