Artists from around the globe now call Queens home, but they continue to be connected to their old lives and homelands through their work.

The Long Island City Artists group taps into this dichotomy with its “Bridging the Gap” show of 50 works by 40 artists.

After a successful run at Flushing Town Hall earlier this summer, the show — albeit a scaled-back version — makes the trip to LaGuardia Community College starting next week.

Pieces included in the show include photographs, paintings and mixed-media creations.

“Bridging the Gap” opens in Long Island City on Sept. 12 and runs through Nov. 20. A second, smaller version of the original show also opens on Nov. 7 at the Queensborough Community College Art Gallery in Bayside.
