On December 18th, the  DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun hosted La Fiesta de Guadalupe. This annual festival honors Mexico’s patron saint, Our Lady of Guadalupe, with music, dancing, and performances including mariachi bands, folkloric dancers, the Yaqui Deer Dancers and Domingo DeGrazia’s Spanish-guitar band. Domingo is the son of Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia Tucson’s most famous and no doubt most prolific artist.

Only Earth. Earth.
Earth for trembling tablecloths,
for a cloud’s vicious eyeball,
for recent wounds and dampened thoughts.
Earth for everything the flees from earth.
