Rooftop view of the Soulard neighborhood in St. Louis 

It has been many years since I entered a piece into an art show.  A few weeks ago Soulard Art Gallery had a call for entries for an upcoming Steampunk show.  Drawn to the fantastical nature of the theme and location of the gallery, I submitted two pieces and they were accepted.
Drawing entries are shown in silver (left) and white frames (right).
Steampunk, for the unaware, is a genre of science fiction depicting an alternate version of the historic past (generally 19th-century Victorian England) and often involves advanced technologies based on steam power. The Urban Dictionary describes it as "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner."   

Soulard residence
Soulard is one of the oldest communities in the city of St. Louis. It is largely a residential neighborhood but businesses include restaurants, bars, and the Anheuser-Busch Brewery.  Many of its stately homes date to the mid- to late-19th century. 
The opening reception for the show was Friday, February 23rd and it was a packed house.  So much so, I need to return before the show ends on March 29th to get a better look at the artwork.  If you can't make it to the gallery, visit the Soulard Gallery Facebook page and scroll down to the February 22nd post to see a video of the show.
