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.
“The Lord Gave Me Brothers Saint Francis of Assisi” February 9, 2015 – December 1, 2015
These paintings were done in 1966 for a book on Saint Francis that was never completed. The paintings include images of Saint Francis and of a Franciscan Friar called “Little Brother” at work in a friary, but unfortunately the story for the book has been lost.
“The Way of the Cross” January 30, 2015 – May 27, 2015
The annual exhibit 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.
