The gallery is absolutely spectacular, the art is unparalleled. The coolness of the gallery is wonderful in the hot sun and the video of Ted DeGrazia is a must.

If you go during the winter time don't miss the visiting artist's exhibits in the Little Gallery out back DeGrazia's home.

I love coming here, it never gets old. Until March 2016, there was no fee but that shouldn't stop anyone who appreciates art. DeGrazia built the studio and it definitely suits his style.

The Gallery in the Sun reminds me a lot of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West. De Grazia used materials he found in the desert to build his gallery, home, guest house, and mission. Between the art hanging on the walls and the architecture, it's hard to say which is more appealing.

A bit out of the way, but another unique Tucson experience. Not just a "gallery" in the usual sense. The grounds, buildings, and art are all worth seeing. They now charge a small entrance fee (to help with expenses), but well worth it. DeGrazia was an interesting man as well artist. He built the chapel - so unique!, his house... More

The DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun is named after a famous Southwestern artist named Ted DeGrazia. He started out talented, visionary, hard-working, but relatively unknown. Over time his characteristic native american painting caught on and are now identified with him. The Gallery in the Sun is a fitting tribute to Ted DeGrazia and is a combined art gallery, meditation place,... More

This Gallery is a Tucson original and everyone must visit at least once in a lifetime. The style of DeGrazia is truly original.

This Museum, Chapel, and Grounds highlight Native American scenes, SW religious art, and special emphasis on mustang horses, along with other historical and expressive pieces of art. The museum is mostly paintings made with a palate knife, but also sculpture, ceramics, and water color. The building itself is a work of art and the garden showcases a Mexican type style.... More
