"Mundanity" looks at sculptural objects that seem familiar in an everyday, mundane sense. Some are made of throw-away materials - paint can lids, garden hoses or cast-off tools; others are representations of common objects, re-made in traditional sculptural materials - a plaster form with gold leaf, cast glass potatoes, a cast iron iron and candy, and wooden limbs.
All of the artists work with the history that objects accrue, uncovering meaning and delight in the quotidian moments and objects that make up our daily lives.
