(520) 299-9191



Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with Lance Laber, Executive Director of DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun in Tucson, about famous Arizona artist Ted DeGrazia’s work featured in the gallery’s new exhibit “DeGrazia’s Hot Wax-Encaustic Paintings”.

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, 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. This exhibit will run from January 26 – September 5, 2018.

DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun is a 10-acre historic district in the foothills of Tucson, Arizona’s Santa Catalina Mountains. It was designed and built from the ground up by Ted DeGrazia who achieved worldwide acclaim for his colorful paintings of native cultures of the Sonoran desert. Using traditional adobe bricks crafted on-site, DeGrazia built the gallery so his paintings “would feel good inside”. Visit www.DeGrazia.org.
