Historic site open house | Glimpses of the Past: Historic New Mexico Prints 1880-1950
Join us for our First Saturday Open House 3-5 pm. Docents will be present in every room providing in-depth knowledge of the E.I. Couse home and studio, the Virginia Walker Couse Heritage Garden, Kibbey Couse's machine shop, and the J.H. Sharp 1915 Studio and exhibition of his work, collections, and ephemera.
Included in the open house is the graphic arts exhibition Glimpses of the Past: Historic New Mexico Prints 1880-1950. This summer and fall, Couse-Sharp Historic Site presents a significant exhibition of graphic media focusing on northern New Mexico, including many artworks never before seen by the public. The 52 works encompass techniques ranging from etching and lithography to woodblock printing, linocut, aquatint, serigraphy and monotype. The exhibition will be on view in the 1830s Luna Family Chapel by appointment and on many Saturdays through November 6, 2021.
