One hundred and four works of arts among 189 entries are on display at the Delicato Winery Tasting Room thru Feb. 23.

The 31st Annual Dorothy Indelicato Fine Art Show at the winery at French Camp Road and Highway 99 is named in honor of the late Dorothy Indelicato who paired her family’s successful wine business  with community service. Indelicato, who founded the fine art show, passed away in 2017

The Best of Show entitled “Child on a Bungee” is the work of Gerald Boyd. It depicts a fun-filled young girl demonstrating an unbridled excitement for life.  Boyd will receive a $200 cash award for his art piece along with $100 each for his two first place entries. 

Categories in the art works included landscapes, seascapes, portraits, animals, whimsical and the art mediums of the art were not a consideration this year, according to Delicato’s Richard Foote. However, the art works range from pencil to watercolors, oils and acrylics. 

The artists came from Manteca, Ripon, Salida, Stockton, Modesto, Merced and Lodi. 

The first-place winners will each receive $100 in the five categories with second place honors receiving a $75 gift certificate.  Third place awards include a $50 gift certificate and the Viewers’ Choice award brings a $100 cash.

The first-place honors went to:

Anthony Pooler with his “Headland” seascape.

Beverly Kay with “Iris Garden.”

Tamara Keiper for “Picture with Cyclamen.”

Gerald Boyd for “Move It!” and for “Sundance Kingman AZ.”


All art in the show will be available for sale on a first come first sale basis. An awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23.

 Delicato Vineyards is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is on Highway 99 (exit 246), four miles north of Manteca.
