Yuanyi Wang won the Popular Choice Award at the 10th Annual Northwest Ohio Community Art Exhibit.
Wang, an undergraduate student in the Bowling Green State University’s School of Art, was honored for her self-portrait “Perfect or Not Perfect.”
The oil painting also received the Toledo Federation of Art Societies Award at the show, which was held in the Bryan Gallery in the BGSU School of Art.
The exhibit, which was open to artists from 12 counties in Northwest Ohio, closed July29. At that point the ballots for the Popular Choice Award were counted. The $50 prize is sponsored by the Bowling Green Arts Council.
Jacqueline Nathan, gallery director, said Wang’s margin of victory was definitive.
