UND Art Collections: Art & Design Study Collection
Mary Weaver is a local artist and businesswoman who owns Browning Arts in Grand Forks, ND. A talented printmaker, Weaver has several works within the University’s permanent collections and has two pieces that are currently on display in the Memorial Union, both of which were featured in a UND Art Collections exhibition called Food For Thought.
This artwork, featuring vibrant orange carrots, fits well in the dining center, which considers themes of food. The artist draws attention to the details of the carrot by sharing an enlarged and close perspective. The attractiveness of Weaver’s food prints remind us of the benefits and vibrancy of fruits and vegetables.
Featured in the 2020 exhibition, Food For Thought, at the Empire Arts Center Gallery.
