Four Rivers Arts Council’s The Creative at Klondike Upcoming Events

The Creative at Klondike is located in Klondike Park, 4600 State Hwy 94 South, Augusta, MO.
On Saturday, May 13, at 6 p.m. The Creative at Klondike is excited to host “The Art of Conservation,” a celebration of the decades-long collaboration between Magnificent Missouri and Bryan Haynes. For twenty years, this team has celebrated a connection between people and the Missouri River valley by promoting this idea: “We are fortunate to live, work and visit a place with so much natural beauty, history and talent” – Dan Burkhardt.
On display throughout the space will be beautiful banners showcasing images created by Bryan for the book Growing Up with the River: Nine Generations on the Missouri. Full of talent and grace, Bryan's work tells the story of our region through historically accurate imagery illuminated with a feeling of light and brilliant color, which are his distinctly. This is a free event, RSVP requested to thecreativeatklondike.com/events or directly to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Following the presentation, please stay to enjoy a casual social hour. The Burkhardt’s will share their Bethlehem Valley Norton, a wine made from the Missouri state grape, with hors d’oeuvres from Sunflower Hill Farm, a local farm to table eatery. The evening is bound to be entertaining, informative, and beautiful. (Supported by the Missouri Humanities Council.)

On May 25, our next class at the Creative at Klondike begins. “Drawing Skills” is tailored for the beginner, but still offers challenges for more advanced students. This four – session class is offered on Thursdays May 25, June 1, 8 and 15. Focus will be on drawing skills and then applying those skills to figure drawing and gridded portraiture. Two sessions are offered for each class; 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. These classes fill quickly, so sign up now at thecreativeatklondike.com. Be sure to check out the other offerings while you are there.

On May 27 at 5:30 p.m. and free to attend is the Opening Reception for the “Somewhere Down the River” Exhibit. Paducah Kentucky, settled on the western shore of the Ohio River, became a UNESCO Creative City, thanks to a 2001 program begun by the town, which they called “the Artist Relocation Program.” Within a few years, the Lowertown area was populated by artists from all over the world. The community continues to develop as a thriving destination for the arts community. This spring, these artists bring their work to us!

“Somewhere Down the River’s” opening reception for our first show features artists from Paducah, Kentucky's artist community. The exhibition runs from May 27 to August 26.
