“I love the idea that you have to think things through. It's not instant gratification, it's an adventure, and at the end of the journey, you learn from it and move on to the next piece.”
This has been a significant time for Maritza. An installation with more than 20 of her prints was on display at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art from July 27 to Dec. 1, 2013. Go here to see an interview with Maritza about the exhibition titled "Ancestry and Identity: Prints by Maritza Davila." One of the works was selected for the Brooks' permanent collection.
Earlier in 2013, Maritza's work was part of the "Present Tense: The Art of Memphis, 2001-Now" at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, a major survey of Memphis artists and art.
She also had two of her art books selected to be in the Boston Printmakers 2013 North American Print Biennial.
In late 2013, the "Global Fusion" portfolio curated by Maritza was accessioned into the Weisman Art Museum collection at the University of Minnesota.
One of Maritza’s art books is included in the We Are You Project International/New England exhibition at Fountain Street Fine Art Gallery in Framingham, Mass. The show of 36 major contemporary Latino artists celebrates the contributions of U.S.-Latinos to American history.
She was also in the Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books Traveling Exhibition III (MIMB III) which was on display at San Francisco State University during the Southern Graphics Council International Conference in March, 2014.
