“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 year for Maritza. An installation with more than 20 of her prints is on display at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art through Dec. 1. The show, titled "Ancestry and Identity: Prints by Maritza Davila," is in the Kraft Gallery. Go here to see an interview with Maritza about the exhibition.
Maritza's works have also been selected to be in several important shows. She 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.
