Caffery Gallery, 4016 Government St., is showing "My Whimsical Everything," a solo show featuring work by Bulgarian artist Mariana Kalacheva, through Dec. 30.

"There are moments in our lives which sound like fairy tales … or at least we can imagine them," says the artist. "'My Whimsical Everything' is an extravagant cocktail of vivid emotions collected and rearranged in a drawer through the years, emotions which never get dusty with time. Stored dreams, memories, intuition and invention, with a mercurial nature, have been turned into a light for the spirit, ever-seeking adventure, mischievously preparing for a new jump into the ocean of reality and virtuality, and into surrealistic or naïve challenges."

Admission is free. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call (225) 388-9397 or visit
