We went to this place because the artist has the same name as a friend. What a wonderful surprise to find it fun and interesting and full of good art including a current pottery artist.

This is close by and I frequent it regularly. His work is immense and the location is beautiful. The exhibits change regularly but the location does not. However it is the location of his home, studio and grounds that are part of the wonderful reason to visit.

It is a little painting gallery about De Grazia, it is a short walk inside the house, but the most I like was this litte expo about a local artist, he had such a nice work and show the local talent, and he also offer cookies and coffee.

Not worth paying for. Go when they have free events. Art is so so and not ground breaking. Better galleries elsewhere.

De Gallery itself is very nice and worth a visit. But what is really nice about this place is the little chapel and courtyard where you can leave little trinkets to honor your loved ones that have passed on. A little piece of heaven on earth.

Getting to this site meant braving Tucson traffic and driving to the far west side of town, but the trip was worth it. Walking through the multi-room "gallery," constructed by artist Ted DeGrazia himself, we learned about adobe construction and mold making for many of the sculptures. The 10-minute video was also educational. I've always associated DeGrazia with the world-famous... More

I love DeGrazia's artwork for its color and vibrancy but this gallery/house may quite possibly be his masterpiece. It's interesting to see how he lived and how he used everything to create a home, and how he lived his life. The little details in the house is what makes this place a wonderful place to visit. I don't think a... More

I visited this gallery back in 1977, when I was getting ready to enter college to study art and was blessed to have met the artist himself, Ted DeGrazia. He was so nice, supportive, a gentle soul, telling me, "Always follow your dreams." It felt so magical there at his gallery, inside the mission he built, walking the grounds around... More
