Open House at The Couse-Sharp Historic Site
September 3, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Couse-Sharp Historic Site invites you to join us for our First Saturday Open House. 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 Academies: Life Drawings by Early Taos Masters in the 1830s Luna Family Chapel, which Sharp used as his first Taos studio.
In our Lunder Research Center, 138 Kit Carson Road, the exhibition The Infinite Landscape featuring the work of Jivan Lee, will be open 1-5 pm.
In addition, you can come early to browse our Bonanza Book Sale, 10 am – 5 pm, on the back portal of The Lunder Research Center.
Open to the public, free admission; donations encouraged. Free parking is available a half block east in the municipal lot on Kit Carson Road; parking for those with disabled permits available on site.
Please note: Because of the site’s nature as a place of historic preservation, most buildings and grounds are not ADA accessible, but The Lunder Research Center is accessible.
