Though the holidays so rudely interrupted programming in New York's galleries, there were a number of stellar shows across the city both before and after the break. The Lower East Side had an unusually robust sampling of painting and sculpture by rising talents on display, announcing a few names that we're going to hear more from down the line—including the new gallery Chapter NY, which debuted with a very strong show by the young artist Sam Anderson. Chelsea and the Upper East Side didn't disappoint either, with excellent offerings at David Zwirner, Luhring Augustine, and other galleries. 

Scroll through the above slide show to see photos from the shows.
