DeGrazia’s Hot Wax – Encaustic Paintings from the 1950’s
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, Tucson artist Ted 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. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Friday January 26th, 2018, and the exhibit will run through September 5th, 2018.
