A Pleasant Surprise out in the Desert
This Gallery in the Sun, is full of history and beautiful paintings by Ettore (Ted) DeGrazia. The buildings are adobe and very pleasant to walk around in. The artwork is beautifully displayed.
Worth the Visit
DeGazia was a great artist and a champion of the Indian community. His art is representative their lives.
Always amazes me
I have been to this Gallery many times and never tire of seeing the work or the garden. Usually there is some special exhibits - this time his encaustics! Hopefully the chapel will be restored soon.
