Nationally-known multi-media artist Larry Krone grew up in St. Louis but has not returned to exhibit his work since 2006. On Friday, Oct. 2, that changes when the Sheldon Art Galleries opens an exhibition of his pieces, which combine found textiles, graphics and craft materials with his own artistic stamp.
The exhibition at the Sheldon is also working in tandem with several other galleries around town to showcase Krone’s work, including Craft Alliance’s “Innovation in Textiles 10” symposium and at projects+gallery in the Central West End, in an exhibition entitled “Larry Krone – The Selling Sound of Country,” which also opens Oct. 2.
On Friday, Krone and Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, director of the Sheldon Art Galleries, joined “Cityscape” to discuss his works and return to St. Louis.
