Six permanent collections of DeGrazia paintings portray colorful cultures of the Sonoran desert, and rotating exhibits feature a wide range of some 15,000 DeGrazia originals, from oil paintings and watercolors to ceramics and sculptures. The gallery is open to the public 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily except New Year's, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission Fees - $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for ages 12-18, under 12 are free.

I recently found out about this artist so decided to visit his house. It was out in the boonies when he purchased the land but is enclosed in suburbia now. Very nicely kept and a wonder to see with...
On my bucket list...
On my bucket list to visit this Gallery! It did not disappoint. We learned so much about the why's and when's regarding DeGrazia's art work. We will return next year!
His history and his art work are things of wonder.
We have visited often since 1974 (when he was alive). Love his artwork and his personality which is strongly in his artwork.
