What do you get when you combine high-concept art with needlepoint pieces found in the aisles of thrift stores? If you're New York-based, St. Louis-born artist Larry Krone, you get the marvelous creations on display in Larry Krone: The Best, Best Everything. Eschewing the idea that artists occupy some vaunted space above the rest of us, Krone brilliantly splices his own work with that of lesser-known artisans. The results have made him a darling of the New York scene and the object of national acclaim; Krone's Look Book, featuring the photography of designer Todd Oldham, comes out at the beginning of December. The Best, Best Everything opens with a free reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, October 2, at the Sheldon art galleries (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-533-9900 or The show remains up through Saturday, January 9, 2016, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday.
