Young artist wins People Choice honors at Now OH exhibit

Amanda Gargac

Amanda Gargac doubled up on her honors at the 11th Now OH exhibit in the university galleries.

When the show closed recently the ballots for People’s Choice were counted and Gargac was the winner. The 18-year-old from Northwood also received the Kiwanis Youth Award  for her painting “Mother to All.”

The painting is a portrait of her grandmother, the mother of 13 children.

Gargac will be a sophomore at the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The Now OH exhibit is open to all artists in a 12-county region of Northwest Ohio. This year 65 artists exhibited work.
