The "Union: A Gathering of People and Art" exhibit brings together the work of artists David Joseph and Robert Porazinski, who organizers say address some "very universal themes in their work ... such as the interconnection and harmony between us, as well as our relationship with nature and our environment."

The exhibit runs through Dec. 31 at the HumanThread gallery on the fifth floor of the Bridgeport Art Center. An artists reception is scheduled for 6-10 p.m. Friday.
