Touches: Healing Art

When: Oct. 23-Nov. 27 2009

Glamorous artist rumor: Renoir, when afflicted with arthritis, tied paintbrushes to his hands. The truth? He did not, but instead stuffed his palms with fabric to steady a brush he could hardly clutch. Unglamorous artist hypothesis: Some scientists believe Rembrandt had a lazy eye, and depicted its wandering gaze in some early self-portraits. For more on art and health, enjoy the five-woman show Touches: Healing Art at Pikes Peak Community College's Downtown Studio Art Gallery (100 W. Pikes Peak Ave., 502-4040), opening with a reception from 5 to 7:30 tonight featuring music by Mango fan Django. The show, up until Nov. 27, is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 to 4. — Edie Adelstein
