“Rodeo” is a 1954 series of oil paintings inspired by the Tohono O’odham Nation Rodeo and Fair in Sells, Arizona. Behind the scenes views of Native American rodeo cowboys waiting in downtime complement DeGrazia’s dynamic action paintings of traditional rodeo events such as bull riding, bronc riding, and steer roping. Painted with bold exuberant palette knife strokes, DeGrazia referred to these impressionistic interpretations as his “drastic” paintings – works that capture a decisive, dramatic moment in paint. On display through Sept. 4, 2024.

“DeGrazia’s Master of Arts Thesis Paintings” is a selection of watercolors and oil paintings from his 1945 University of Arizona Master of Arts thesis, “Art and its Relation to Music in Music Education.” This accompanying work, based on movements from popular works of classical music, demonstrates his theories about the correlation between the melodies, harmonies, and rhythms of music, and the shapes, colors, and rhythms of abstract paintings. On display through Sept. 4, 2024.

“DeGrazia’s Textile Designs for Fuller Fabrics.” From 1952 to 1956, Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia designed Southwestern novelty prints for Fuller Fabrics of New York. DeGrazia’s prints were sold nationwide in fabric stores and were featured in ready-to-wear fashions sold in hundreds of department stores. This exhibit features textile design watercolors, Fuller Fabrics yardage samples, and garments made with DeGrazia prints. On display now through January 2025.
