Art opening and runway show will become one. United by inspiration from the greater universe, fine artist Ian Pawelec and fashion designer Geoffrey Mac will join together to exhibit work in Noho based concept store and gallery, MISHA NICOLE. Both Pawelec and Mac’s pieces strive to go further than the contemporary and explore that which is truly outside our realm. Beyond Earth broadens the context of art and fashion challenging the viewer to see the interconnections and contrasts of functional design and fine art that is driven by the immense scope of all that is beyond us.
