“A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you're ever in Tucson, De Grazia Gallery in the Sun is a must see. Artist, Ted Grazia was born and raised in southern Arizona and this man not only created a spectacular art gallery, he also designed and built his home and a church which sits on the property. It's a warm and colorful place that oozes in south western art and decor.

“Love, love, love it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I haven't been here in several years, but I would go all the time if I could. I love De Grazia. The studio is full of beautiful artwork! It's in a very cute southwest building, which makes it even better!

“Always a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Not one of the well know spots to visit, more of an insiders location. Seasoned locals know and love this gallery and museum. Make sure you visit the guest artist in residence!

“Wonderful display of desert and native art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Being from Canada, we had never heard of Ted De Grazia, so was very surprised to see the amazing variety of artwork displayed in his gallery. I loved the video which told his story, and thoroughly enjoyed his paintings and stained glass pieces depicting native culture. The color and feeling in his art is amazing. We also enjoyed wandering around the grounds and his little chapel.
Tucson should be very proud that De Grazia called it home.

“Classic Southwest Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Room after room of artwork byTed De Grazia, beautifully displayed in southwestern style gallery. All the movement, bright colors, dancing children I associate with De Grazia, plus thought-provoking collections depicting native cultures. A highlight for us was the room devoted to his Stations of the Cross (narrated by the artist himself), a special Lenten display. There is no charge to tour the gallery! Beautiful grounds and reasonably priced items in gift shop too.
