First Saturday | Couse-Sharp Historic Site Open House

3-5pm
146 Kit Carson Road

The Couse-Sharp Historic Site invites you to join us for our First Saturday Open House Sept. 2 from 3 to 5 p.m., at 146 Kit Carson Road. Tour the historic studios of E.I. Couse and J.H. Sharp, two of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists (TSA), 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 House and Studio, as well as the newly restored Sharp Studio and the exhibition J. H. Sharp Studio: The Life and Work of an American Legend.

Our 2017 summer exhibition, Seldom Seen: Archival Stories, in the Luna Chapel illustrates the important role archives play in the research and interpretation of the TSA. The exhibition demonstrates how sometimes seemingly insignificant objects and materials have the ability to tell profound stories. It also highlights recently donated or promised archival materials and artwork of the TSA.
