Rotating exhibitions display some of the 15,000 DeGrazia originals housed in the permanent collection including oils, watercolors, sketches, serigraphs, lithographs, sculptures, ceramics and jewelry. Not only does the rotating gallery showcase unseen treasures from DeGrazia’s vault it also displays some of his most well-known collections such as the “Way of the Cross” which is on display every year for Easter.
“DeGrazia’s Chickens” Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia (1909 – 1982) created hundreds of images of chickens over the course of his career. This selection of four dozen works features scratching and strutting yard birds, fighting cocks, chickens bound for market, pet roosters, and textile designs. From the profound sadness of the 1936 oil painting The Losers, to the meticulous colorful detail of the 1982 watercolor Boy Chasing a Rooster, chickens were an endless source of inspiration for DeGrazia. “DeGrazia’s Chickens” is currently on display through January 30th, 2019.
“Desert Dwellings” The landscape paintings of Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia are featured in this new exhibit at the Gallery in the Sun. Distant adobes, ranch houses, and saguaros populate these moody landscapes, many of which have never been on display. “Desert Dwellings” is currently on display through January 30th, 2019.
