The Soulard Art Gallery (2028 South 12th Street, 314-258-4299), a co-op gallery space located in the heart of the historic neighborhood, has long been known for its resident artists and its monthly themed shows.

The latest is the Art of Whimsy, a showcase of "fantastic images, fanciful and playful ideas and vintage retro design." Co-curated by Alison Bozarth and Jay Thompson, the show features more than 50 artists and 65 artworks. Some not-to-miss inclusions are "Radio Flyer" by John Friese, which won the gallery's award of excellence; merit award winners "The Cultural Shift" by Dylan Wilson and "He Said, She Said" by Katie Chilman; and the curator's choice award winner, "Space Buns" by Alexis Pick.

The show is free to attend and will be on display through Friday, January 6. Check for gallery hours.
