Earthen Temples: The Life of Adobe Churches

Earthen Temples, The Life of Adobe Churches
There is nothing like using your hands to heal the structure where you have been worshipping all your life.  Earthen Temples, The Life of Adobe Churches is an exhibition that will share the story of how parish members come together to care for the adobe churches in their communities.

The exhibition includes photographs of the enjarre (replastering) at San Francisco de Asis church in Ranchos de Taos by Rupert Chambers and photographs of the restoration of the San Antonio de Padua Church in Questa by Carrie Leven, as well as images and information of each church courtesy of the Taos News. The story of the longevity of the adobe churches in New Mexico is a result of the faith, hard work and love that has sustained each community through the last 200 years.

There will be an opening reception on Sunday March 25th, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
Exhibition runs Saturday March 24th – Sunday June 24th
