CURRENT EXHIBITS ON DISPLAY UNTIL SEPTEMBER 21, 2021:
Traditional Egg Tempera Paintings: Ted DeGrazia briefly focused on the ancient technique, producing tempera paintings in 1959 and 1960.

Celestial Music of Heavenly Angels: Dating from the mid 1950’s to the early 1960’s, DeGrazia’s musical angels are depicted playing horns, violins, harps, banjos, and record players.

A Rare Collection of Abstract Work: Beginning with his master’s thesis paintings in the mid-1940’s and continuing through the mid-1950’s, these works range from small sketches and studies to large format paintings and screen prints.

“The Way of The Cross” – The annual showing of Ted DeGrazia’s “The Way of the Cross” is on display through Lent with 15 original oil paintings that depict the suffering and crucifixion of Christ. Instead of the traditional 14 Stations of the Cross, DeGrazia’s collection culminates with the resurrection. “I never thought the cycle would be completed unless we had the 15th station where Jesus arises in glory,” the artist explained on a 15-minute audiotape that accompanies the exhibition.
