DeGrazia used to be one of my favorite places to go, both solo and when folks from out of town were visiting. In the spirit of Ted De Grazia, it was open to all and we could browse the grounds and his home-studio-gallery at will. We won't be going anymore since it became a pay-to-wander sort of gallery.

We've been stopping here for years and we were surprised they now charge $8 to get in, but as a result there was almost no one there on a weekday and it was a very relaxed self-tour.

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.
