CURRENT TED DEGRAZIA EXHIBITS

“DeGrazia’s Hot Wax-Encaustic Paintings”: Scenes from everyday life, horses, children, and religious figures are among the subject matter of the new exhibit DeGrazia’s Hot Wax-Encaustic Paintings from the 1950’s. In the mid-1950’s, DeGrazia explored the obscure technique of encaustic painting. Using the molten colored beeswax medium, he created dozens of encaustic paintings between 1953 and 1957. Six of the twenty-five paintings featured in this exhibit are newly discovered, and eighteen of them have never been on display. This exhibit will run from January 26 – September 5, 2018.

DeGrazia’s Chickens – Paintings and sculpture spanning six decades of Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia’s career are featured in DeGrazia’s Chickens, a new exhibit at the Gallery in the Sun. Chickens were a favorite subject of the artist who depicted them as everything from a folksy background detail or fashion accessory, to heroic portraits and textile designs. This exhibit will run through January 30th, 2019.

DeGrazia’s Birthday – Every year on June 14th, from 10-4, we celebrate Ted DeGrazia’s birthday with free cake and ice cream! Stroll through the 10-acre gallery grounds on this special day to see the art and architecture of Arizona’s acclaimed artist as we celebrate his birth in the copper mining camp of Morenci on June 14, 1909. This event is open to the public and offers free admission for the day!
