Tucson artists Ted DeGrazia and Marion Sheret DeGrazia were married in a jungle wedding chapel in Oaxaca, Mexico in 1947. Ted came prepared to paint on their honeymoon, and was inspired by the lush tropical jungles and primitive native cultures of Southern Mexico, which provided him with exciting new subject matter. This wildly colorful selection of paintings from the 1940’s and early 50’s are   reminiscent of earlier Impressionistic Master’s works. The exhibit features a dozen paintings on display for the first time. A free opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, September 6th, 2019. The exhibits will remain on display through January 29th, 2020.
