Tan­maya Bing­ham: Dog and Dove Sparkles 2016, col­ored pen­cil and paint on panel

Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-954-5700 Heart & Soul, a fundrais­ing ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing the art­work of Tan­maya Bing­ham, opens on Satur­day, Dec. 10, with a re­cep­tion at 2 p.m. A per­cent­age of pro­ceeds from the sale of the work sup­ports the Heart & Soul An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary, a res­cue and adop­tion ser­vice for abused and ne­glected cats and dogs. Bing­ham, a skilled draftswoman and painter, cre­ates sur­real com­po­si­tions with el­e­ments of fan­tasy and pho­to­re­al­ism. Her an­i­mal por­traits are vis­ual metaphors for the hu­man con­di­tion. Bing­ham, along with an­i­mals from the sanc­tu­ary, are present for the re­cep­tion.
