Time of 'War' for East Village artist Anton van Dalen

Longtime East Village artist Anton van Dalen is exhibiting with the P.P.O.W. Gallery at the Armory Show this weekend.

He's part of a group with five other P.P.O.W. artists. The curated theme: War.

"Included is this enormous canvas, which I painted in 1982 ... will be thrilling to see it there," he said in an email. "For me it's one of these freeing moments where intuition, 37 years later, finally flowered."

I've been wondering about him lately as I haven't seen his pigeons flying. Glad to hear he's part of this show.
