First Saturday Open House | Artist Demonstration with Ira Lujan

Please join us for First Saturday Open House on July 7, 3-5 pm.

At 3:30, we will host a glass-blowing demonstration by Taos Pueblo glass artist Ira Lujan. He is one of a dozen Taos Pueblo artists featured in the exhibition Full Circle: Taos Pueblo Contemporary, which opens this same day. For more information about the exhibition, see the event page.

During the open house, tour the 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 historic 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, and the exhibition J. H. Sharp: The Life and Work of an American Legend in the recently restored 1915 Sharp Studio. 

Free parking is available in the public lot at the bottom of the hill about a half block east on Kit Carson Road.
