“The Gallery in the Sun is truly a kaleidoscope of expressions with an aura of creativity.” – DeGrazia
Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia’s artistic expression overflows out of the gallery and into the grounds. When Tucson began to grow in 1950, DeGrazia and his wife purchased the isolated foothills property that the gallery sits on today. What started as a small construction project for a new gallery space developed into a 10-acre artistic refuge. Proof of DeGrazia’s artistic vision are scattered around the desert, from the arches with flowers made of recycled cans to the Yaqui Deer Dancer sculpture in the courtyard.
The gallery’s 10 acres feature stunning mountain views and rolling terrain filled with colorful cactus and desert vegetation.
