The Creative at Klondike is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization,
in collaboration with
St. Charles County Parks and Recreation.

About Us

Our mission at The Creative at Klondike is to build a culture of creative and inspired thought through art, processes and experiences. We long imagined a dedicated space in the Augusta, Missouri area for and by artists to convene, exhibit, teach and learn from each other. We also envisioned this space to be a community gathering place, where creativity and inspiration would thrive - where atmosphere and artistic socialization would foster creative experiences.

Galleries

The Quarry Gallery hosts works by regional artists with an emphasis on showcasing renowned regional artists and supporting emerging regional artists.

The Macler Gallery is our main gallery which hosts 4 to 6 curated exhibitions a year. These curated exhibitions are invitational and carefully selected for theme, selected focus, impact on culture, and audience.

The Overlook Gallery is on the second level, above the main Macler Gallery and can offer complementary works, or display limited works of emerging artists or studio specialties such as photography or fiber arts.

Artist Studios

Three working artist studios are located on the upper balcony level. Our Creative Director, Kimberly Alsop, has a permanent studio that is her creative center, shaping the vision, concepts and design philosophy for arts center projects and installations. Two resident artists have working studios adjacently. These artists have creative space to produce their art, share and learn with fellow artists while at The Creative, and share with visitors during open studio hours.

Workshop Studios

Our workshop studios are an evolving project as we gain input from the community. We are previewing a Ceramics Studio, Fiber Studio, and Photography Studio. In addition, we have classroom/workshop space for jewelry & metalsmithing, painting, drawing, and other visual arts.

Art & Nature Workshops

Because The Creative is a collaboration with St. Charles County Parks, there is space set aside for workshops and presentations from both groups. The large open space is available for art programs, ranger demonstrations and collaborative efforts between the two.

Our location within a 250-acre county park along the Missouri River and river bluffs provides the perfect backdrop for open air classes and art & nature courses.

Meeting Space for Creative Professional Development

We can arrange our Macler Gallery to comfortably seat 75 to100 people for a work or professional conference. Meals can be catered and served in the adjacent café area.

Studio Artists

Meet Kimberly Alsop, our Creative Director and
Resident Studio Artist

With a propensity for creating larger than life artworks, many of Kimberly's commissions include murals, using trompe L'oeil, and various decorative painting techniques. Kimberly is a member of Salon Forever, an international group of decorative painters, with a recent exhibition in Bergen, Norway, and will be exhibiting at Salon San Francisco 2023.

Kimberly’s artistic vision is to turn the mundane into something extraordinary.
