BROOKLYN - Local artists are using their paint brushes and canvases to showcase the tragedies and triumphs that the community saw in the wake of Superstorm Sandy last year.

About 300 local artists are putting on an exhibit called "Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year One." It features the work of many artists who weathered the storm, including some who had studios and works of art that were damaged by the disaster.

The show is presented by the Dedalus Foundation and by Industry City, whose space experienced flooding after the massive storm last year. Volunteers worked to recover hundreds of works of art, while others created new pieces to put on display, all with a theme of resilience.

The exhibit is free and it will run until Dec. 15 at Industry City.
