Air Forms: Kites as Adaptive Surfaces
This exhibit presents ongoing student projects from the IDEA (Interdisciplinary Design and Experimental Architecture) Studio of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Founded with the support of a 2015 NCARB Award, IDEA Studio is an innovative interdisciplinary research and curricular initiative comprising the fields of architecture, textile design, and engineering. This year we focus on design explorations of ‘kites’, investigating the concepts of adaptive surfaces which propose an architecture that shifts from rigid to soft and dynamic structures and mechanisms. Wind is considered as a primary material in this research which will be harvested, manipulated, and controlled through the parameters of geometry, textiles, computational techniques, and fabrication, and tested through prototyping. The exhibit highlights student design research and mock-up models highlighting the potential of interdisciplinary approaches that merge hand- and digital-craft (simulations, physical computing, fabrication) and new materials and structures (atmospheric layers) into high-performance surfaces and envelopes.  Building on key concepts of the existing body of knowledge and the state-of-the-art, IDEA Studio aims to envision the future of architecture with novel materials strategies including textiles, fibers, and composites. Considering environmental concerns of energy efficiency, scarcity of natural resources, greenhouse gas, and recyclability of building systems, and human comfort and wellbeing, this research illustrates novel approaches to wind energy and material use. The discoveries and knowledge are aiming to advance design approaches in the disciplines of architecture, textile and engineering.

Night of Lights
On Friday, October 5th, the Chestnut Hill Conservancy is presenting the second annual Night of Lights, an innovative public art exhibit that will transform Chestnut Hill’s commercial corridor into an interactive exhibit of local history and architecture. Many area shops and restaurants will be open late, inviting visitors to explore this shopping and dining destination as never before.
During this one evening, historical images and films from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy's Archives will be projected through storefront windows and onto exterior walls. Neighboring buildings along Germantown Avenue will be illuminated with theatrical lights, casting colors, patterns, and shadows to highlight their unique architectural features. These will be enhanced with interactive elements designed to immerse the visitor in the ongoing story of Chestnut Hill. Long-time business owners will become interpreters for the evening, sharing stories and engaging the community about their own history. Demonstrations by expert artisan stone masons, woodworkers, and metal smiths—many of them descendants of the artisans who built Chestnut Hill—will be featured alongside vintage cars, street musicians, and more. 
This street-long spectacular is organized in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Business District. A 7pm opening reception at the Water Tower (Ardleigh Street and Southampton Avenue) will kick off the event with a “Flip the Switch” ceremony to turn on the lights.

For immediate release:
K gallery Art & Design present work by sculpture Nick Kacic -Miosic as part of the Philadelphia Design District’s Sensory Design exhibit @ Design Philadelphia.
A private Opening reception will be held Saturday, October 6th 6pm-9pm at 120n 3rd street Philadelphia PA/19106.
RSVP required: tommimischell@gmail.com
The exhibition will be curated by Tommi Mischell multidisciplinary artist, designer one of the founder of K Gallery Art & Design. The exhibit will feature Kacic-Miosic sculptures from the serial of sculptures “My beautiful Singer “ and “Blue whisper”.
Special event “Meet and greet with the artist “ will take place Saturday, October 12th from 6pm-9pm.
Nick Kacic- Miosic (1960) is a Croatian- American sculptor coming from 7 generations Croatian noble family Kacic- Miosic, dating from the 13th-century tradition of sculptors in stone media. His work is exquisite because of the juxtaposition of two elements, the train of thought in which his ideas arrive and reflect in his marble and limestone pieces that like liquid emotion stuck in every caving and craves completing an emotional impact emanating passion. In some ways, he had evolved on the longtime stagnant cubist style which has not been embellished on since the time of Archepinko, Henry – Laurens, Picasso. Nick studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.
He holds an international recognition and had many exhibits in Philadelphia, New York, Paris, London Biennale, Strasbourg. Two of the Nicks sculptures are at permanent exhibition at Museum Sheik Al Zayed in the city of Kairo-Egypt. Nick artwork was reviewed by Neli Rakowsky (former lecturer at Museum St. Petersburg Moskva and lecturer at Metropolitan Museum New York ) and future in Art In America:”Nick Kacic is a hereditary sculptor, working straight in marble with no preliminary clay modeling or puncturing. He possesses a rather strong personality for not just guard ancient tradition at the time when in the art almost nothing left from it but strengthens it with an injection of the harsh attitude and sufficient deformation which leads away from just reproduction of the ancient harmony.”
It is a pleasure to announce that Nick's work will be featured at Salon de Automne -Paris in October 2018. www.nickkacicmiosic.com
