William LeGoullon often credits his devotion to and engagement with the Phoenix arts community as one of his driving inspirations and has actively supported his local interest for over 10 years. Since receiving his BFA from the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts at Arizona State University in 2009, he has exhibited extensively throughout the state of Arizona as well as nationally including juried exhibitions at such venues as The Center For Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado and The Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kansas. In 2011 LeGoullon was awarded The Contemporary Forum of The Phoenix Art Museum's "Emerging Artist Grant" and exhibited in The Arizona Biennial at the Tucson Museum of Art. The following year he was awarded a Public Art Commission by The City of Phoenix - Office of Arts and Culture as part of the Seventh Ave. Streetscape Project.
Having solo exhibitions, at such places as Modified Arts Contemporary Gallery, The Icehouse, Eye Lounge Contemporary Art Gallery, and Bokeh Gallery at Monorchid, LeGoullon has also begun exploring the act of curation while continuing to take part in artist lectures and educational engagement presentations throughout the city. In early 2012, he curated “The Forty Eighth: Contemporary Photography at Arizona’s Centennial” which displayed at MonOrhid Gallery in downtown Phoenix. He has served as a member of The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art’s Artist Advisory Council and is an Eye Lounge Artist Collective and Contemporary Art Gallery Alumni. In addition to creating art, William also works as a freelance commercial photographer and teaches at Phoenix College. He plans to continue living and working in the Phoenix area.
