Wednesday, October 19: Join the Forsyth Galleries at 5:30 PM on October 19th for a talk by Mr. Carl Jones, president of The Couse Foundation. Mr. Jones will detail the beginnings of the Taos Society of Artists. Refreshments and Q&A will follow his talk. The Taos Society of Artists was started in 1915 by six professional artists from the Eastern portion of the U.S. who were captivated by the fascinating beauty found in the Taos Valley region of northern New Mexico. Inspired by the art colonies of Europe, they were stimulated to establish such a colony in Taos. The Taos Society of Artists began sending circuit exhibitions of their paintings across the country and exposing audiences to new cultures, new visions, and a new landscape. This put Taos on the map for art and tourism, making it one of the most important art colonies in America. ​ Today, the Couse-Sharp Historic Site contains the home and studio of E. I. Couse, the first president of the Taos Society of Artists, and two studios of Joseph Henry Sharp, secretary and a founding member of the Society. Seating is limited, so please RSVP by calling 979-458-5460. The Forsyth Galleries are located on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M University campus. More information about our exhibitions and programs can be found on the Texas A&M University Art Galleries Website.
