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 Desert Dwellings: The landscape paintings of Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia are featured in this new exhibit at the Gallery in the Sun.
