Work by Maritza Davila Featured in Three Exhibitions
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – With a large number of renowned and accomplished faculty members, it is not unusual for Memphis College of Art to announce faculty exhibition participation in galleries across the country. However, for MCA’s Chair of Fine Arts and Head of Printmaking Maritza Davila, three exhibitions in rapid succession is a standout.

Currently running is Davila’s solo exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum, which opened on July 27 and will be on view through December 2. A special request by the Brooks, the works selected relate to Davila’s ancestry. The result is an installation of an altar, similar to one Davila’s father had in their home, using her prints to create a chapel dedicated to parents and close friends.
Davila’s (LITHOGARPHY/WOODCUT/SCREENPRINT ACCORDION STRUCTURE ARTIST BOOK)  print Bilingual is featured in the We Are You Project’s California Exhibition at the Joyce Gordon Gallery in Oakland. This traveling exhibit is the first comprehensive coast-to-coast artistic overview of the current state of Latino socio-cultural, political and economic conditions. It is comprised of prominent contemporary Hispanic masters, whose trans-cultural, pan-Latino heritages can be traced to a dozen diverse nations including Mexico, Puerto-Rico, Cuba, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Spain and Portugal. Each of these artists have experienced the distinction of being an immigrant, a refugee, a migrant, or an expatriate who gratefully found a new home or residence in the United States, a journey often fraught with risk, peril, struggle and hardship on the way to opportunity. The exhibit opened August 2 and will continue on view August 31.
Additionally, Davila will exhibit her work at the Boston Printmakers 2013 North American Biennial exhibition in Boston, MA. (Need title and description of work here TWO ARTISTS BOOKS WERE ACCEPTED) Davila’s work was one of only 139 entries accepted out of 2306 submissions. The exhibition runs from Oct. 27 though Dec. 20.
