7/25 Update From Dick Wimberly:
Tomorrow morning -Thursday, July 25 -the Fechin will open at 9am. For those of you who have not signed in, we be there a little before 9 to give you your packet and stamp panels.
You can still receive panel stamping at Couse-Sharp and Blumenschein from artists stationed there. They should have a stamping sign displayed. Tomorrow we will have a box for wet painting dropoff at Fechin for those who have to leave early.
Some artists have directly asked if they have to paint only at the locations. No. The paintouts were set up to honor these famous Taos artists and their historic studios. Go with your heart, what should you paint to honor Fechin, Course, Sharp, Blumenschein and other Taos artists? Do good art. Do great paintings. And I have already seen great paintings produced today. It makes me thrilled to be a part of this event.
Due to demand we have early turn in of wet paintings on Friday at the Blumenschein Museum from 12- 4 pm, Then the official turn in of wet paintings is from 4-6 pm. Show will be hung that night. Then Saturday morning, the 27th, the show will be judged by Louis Escobedo with the reception that afternoon 3-5 pm.

Taos Art Museum at Fechin House. There is plenty of parking here. It would be best to park in the gravel lots near the front of the property. Just a short walk to the gardens.
The Couse-Sharpe Historic Site There is a nice sized Free City Parking Lot just east of the site on Kit Carson Road. The parking lot at the museum is quite small and would best be left for tourists and handicapped parking. There may be other free parking spots on side streets near by.
E.L. Blumenschein Home and Museum There is very limited parking near here. We recommend artists get together beforehand and work out carpooling arrangements and dropping off those less able to walk long distances. Most lots near here are private and threaten tow away.
Hacienda de los Martinez: The Martinez Hacienda is just off State Road 240, (Ranchitos Road). You can find Ranchitos Road on the Taos Walking Map supplied to you. Look for the number 24 on the map for Hacienda de los Martinez. Simply follow the winding road through the Taos countryside following the occasional brown and white signs pointing the way to the Hacienda. The last one being at Hacienda Way. The site is just a hundred yards off State Road 240.
It can also be reached by turning West off State Road 68, (Paseo del Pueblo Sur) at the light in Los Ranchos de Taos onto State Road 240 and following the winding and picturesque road a couple of miles to Hacienda Way. Look for the brown and white signs pointing the way.
There is ample parking at the site.
