    Unholding is an exhibition of metal work and silverpoint drawings by Jessica Mohl. This recent body of work investigates the pattern of cycles and impermanence found in nature. Mohl draws on the beauty of overlooked ephemera, from seedpods to cocoons, to create drawings and sculptures using traditional metalsmithing techniques.

    The Bellbirds' Morning Song surveys a range of two-dimensional images and three-dimensional sculptures created for recent short films by Damon Mohl. The exhibition includes full-scale and miniature sets, costumes as well as detailed props, all of which function as individual works as well as the physical remnants of broader ephemeral cinematic ideas.
