Couse-Sharp Historic Site invites you to join us for our First Saturday Open House. In August edition, at 2 pm, we host a talk and demonstration by stone sculptor John Suazo, one of Taos Pueblo artists featured in the exhibition Reflections: Taos Pueblo and the Photography of E. I. Couse. This exhibition will be open 1-5 p.m. In our Lunder Research Center adjacent to the historic site.
From 3-5 p.m., you can tour the historic homes and studios of E. I. Couse and J. H. Sharp, two of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists, and enjoy a delightful stroll through Virginia Couse’s vintage garden. Docents will be present in every room providing in-depth knowledge of the E. I. Couse home and studio, the Kibbey Couse laboratory and machine shop, the Couse Mobile Machine Shop, the exhibition J. H. Sharp: The Life and Work of an American Legend in the 1915 Sharp Studio, and the exhibition Aún Aquí: Spanish Colonial Contemporary in the 1830s Luna Family Chapel, which Sharp used as his first Taos studio.
These events are open to the public with free admission; donations encouraged. Free parking available a half block east in the municipal lot on Kit Carson Road; parking for those with disabled permits available on site.
