In January 2012, Artiste launched their first Facebook Art Label Contest where artists all over the United States could upload their artwork for a chance to get their art featured on a bottle of Artiste wine. To date we have successfully executed three contests and combined we received over 725 entries. We will continue to host these Art Label Contests on Facebook twice a year and the chosen artist will be featured on a upcoming Modern Wine Release and get their art on two bottles of wine!

Cleveland based artist Jacqueline DelBrocco earned her BFA from Wittenberg University in 2007 and also studied painting in Rome, Italy and at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She has a second bachelors degree in Biology which tends to creep its way into her artwork. DelBrocco has shown in galleries, museums and various other venues throughout the Midwest and her paintings are in private collections across the country.
This past year, she traveled to Denver, CO to exhibit her artwork and was also sponsored by Moen Faucets to create a 10ft tall guitar for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and United Way’s Guitarmania 2012. This coming May she’s looking forward to the honor of painting on site at the Cleveland Museum of Art for the Rattner School’s 50th Anniversary Gala.
DelBrocco owns and operates JADE Gallery, a fine art gallery located in Chesterland, OH and is also the Cleveland Showcase Director for RAW natural born artists. She is very passionate about not only creating artwork, but finding new and exciting ways to share it with people around her.

June 2012 Contest Winner
I picked up a paintbrush for the first time in my life in December of 2011 and discovered a whole new world; a world brimming with imagination, creativity, freedom, expressionism, and vivacity. I'm in love with the science of artwork, how it can soothe a soul, bring comfort and ease to someone, or give a room life. So far, I love painting everything, but as I develop this newly found talent, I’m positive I will find a style all of my own. Do you need a custom painting for your office or home? Contact me for details. There’s nothing like owning a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that has no barcode and no replicas. Support your local artist.
