Our hearts go out to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Amidst the devastation in Brooklyn we are left with visual images of the destruction in Dumbo: Jane's Carousel inundated by the stormy out of control East River, Smack Mellon's studios with water up to the ceiling, and Galapagos's with tables and chairs floating through the space. In Red Hook photos of the Civil War era warehouse building that houses BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artist's Coalition) appears to be in New York Harbor. Terrible stories abound of flooded artists' studios in Greenpoint and Gowanus. The loss of power and infrastructure has also had a huge effect on the practical functioning of many galleries in Brooklyn, especially in Dumbo, but even in neighborhoods that were not flooded. We have tried to confirm date changes with the galleries, but as some of them do still not have electricity, these listings may not be completely accurate. Most of the events scheduled for the November WAGMAG were cancelled or delayed, and we have therefore come out with a special November/December issue. Please check with galleries before attending events.
