What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Anton van Dalen and Valerie Smaldone.

Anton van Dalen simultaneously has two solo shows at separate galleries in New York City. Romeo will “focus on my street inspired drawings, raw works, mostly on paper,” according to Anton. And Sargent’s Daughters will “show more intimate poetic representations, with a mix of mediums,” he tells us.
