    Event Description:

    Please join us for First Saturday Open House on October 6, 3-5 pm. Ahead of the open house, at 2 pm, we will host a talk and traditional pottery firing by Edna Romero, one of 19 Taos Pueblo artists featured in the exhibition Full Circle: Taos Pueblo Contemporary, open in the Site's Luna Chapel until Nov. 3.

    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 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 lab and machine shop, and the exhibition J. H. Sharp: The Life and Work of an American Legend in the restored 1915 Sharp Studio.

    At this open house we highlight the "Mother Garden" of Taos by collecting seeds and cuttings during the year and sharing them with community members and visitors. The giveaway continues a tradition in remembrance of Virginia Walker Couse's original generosity, which helped establish many Taos gardens. 

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