Exhibition showcases artistic response to disaster

The "After Affects" exhibition,

featuring 36 storm-inspired works by 23 artists, opens Feb. 8 at the

Chashama gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. The show is curated by the

New York Foundation for the Arts, which is assisting artists whose

livelihoods suffered storm losses. Many studios and galleries were in

waterfront warehouse areas that suffered some of the worst damage from Superstorm Sandy. (AP)
