Oakdale artist Joan Cardoza’s “take it off” depicting a boy and his horse earned Best of Show honors at the 25th annual Delicato Fine Art Show.

Over 200 fine art entries received by Delicato since the end of December have been judged with some wonderful pieces of art accepted for display.

Last year over 10% of the art on exhibit was sold to visitors from all over the country. All art in this show is available for sale. The Best of Show by Cardoza is for sale at $975.

The accepted art will be on display in the winery’s Tasting Room through Saturday, Feb. 2. All Delicato visitors and friends of the artists are welcome to visit, taste the wines, and vote for their favorite piece of art during the next three weeks. The voting ends Feb. 1. The artist who collects the most votes will win the coveted Visitors Choice Award.

There will be an award ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 2 and art lovers as well as wine tasting visitors will be encouraged to visit with the artists from 2 to 4 p.m. It is a wonderful time to meet the artists and to ask them about their art. The art judge, Frank Ordaz, will be in attendance. He has many interesting stories to tell including his involvement with George Lucas and his movies such as “Star Wars” and “ET”. We are looking forward to seeing his Power-Point presentation of his artwork.

“Be sure to attend the award ceremony,” Dorothy Indelicato said. “Mr. Frank Ordaz is planning on attending. Frank loves to teach and would be willing to have classes in our area if there is enough interest. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in February.”

Entries from Manteca that received awards were Janet Powell McKee’s “Grape Habitat” that took first in the Wine/Grapes division, Janet Powell Mckee’s “Ulanawa” that took second in the animals division, and Connie Reed’s “Sunflowers with Bees” that earned an honorable mention in the whimsical division.

Ripon entries that received awards were Shirley Sharp’s “Lake Michigan Lighthouse” with an honorable mention in the landscape division, Cindy Wilbur’s Homeward Bound” with an honorable mention in the landscape division, Cindy Wilbur’s “Davine” with an honorable mention in the wine/grapes division, and Shirley Sharp’s “from the Garden Window” with an honorable mention in the other division.

Lathrop resident Deborah Gordin’s “Modern Medusa” received an honorable mention in the portrait division.

Delicato Vineyards is located on Highway 99 at the French Camp Road exit, four miles North of Manteca. The tasting room, where the art is displayed, is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to come and enjoy the art with a glass of wine and hors d’oeuvres.
