The art of Healing & Evidence on hands on stone

"The Art of Healing" and "Evidence on hands on stone" are two exhibits I saw recently.
"The Art of Healing" is a collection of paintings by two ladies, Mary Sandoval and Sindee Viano. Sindee was my boys art teacher at school that they had attended. She has now moved on to teaching at her studio and became an art therapist. Her brightly colored art works used different medium to express herself.
"Evidence on hands on stone" is by Jeff Curto, head of photography department at College of Du Page. He has traveled to Italy for many years, and has taken photographs in this beautiful country. This collection he has concentrated on stone works. One photograph showed how stones were smoothed down by people of streets walking on it day in and day out, to huge granite columns that were carved by hands, to huge carved statues.

They are both inspiring in their own way, and something that should not be missed.
