Artists from both sides of the borough will have a chance to connect at an upcoming art show in Flushing.

Arts advocacy group Long Island City Artists (LIC-A) will host a “Flushing Bound” exhibition at Flushing Town Hall from Sept. 6 until Sept. 30. The show will be curated by artists Nancy Gesimondo and Carol Crawford and will feature work in mediums including figurative and abstract paintings, photography and mixed media.

An opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Sept. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The show is designed to create a space where the borough’s artists can interact and introduce themselves to the public, who will be welcome to view the exhibition for its duration at the cultural center.

Local artists are invited to submit art work to the show, but they must be a member of LIC-A. Interested parties can apply on their website until July 21.

Flushing Town Hall, which is located at 137-35 Northern Blvd., will also host its annual members exhibition from Aug. 3 until 22, which will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and is available for viewing on weekdays by appointment. Most artwork at the event will be for sale, with proceeds supporting the center’s Visual Arts program and local artists.

Questions about the events can be directed to Flushing Town Hall at 718-463-7700.
