New Exhibit: “DeGrazia Paints the Jungle” Tucson artists Ted DeGrazia and Marion Sheret DeGrazia were married in a jungle wedding chapel in Oaxaca, Mexico in 1947. Ted came prepared to paint on their honeymoon, and was inspired by the lush tropical jungles and primitive native cultures of Southern Mexico, which provided him with exciting new subject matter. This wildly colorful selection of paintings from the 1940’s and early 50’s are reminiscent of earlier Impressionistic Master’s works. The exhibit features a dozen paintings on display for the first time.
New Exhibit: “DeGrazia Downtown” From lively but remote Indian trading posts, to the traffic jams and skyscrapers of New York City, DeGrazia Downtown showcases a collection of street scenes by Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia, dating from 1940 to 1974.
