Maria in Residency at Zea Mays Printmaking
Early this year, Maria was invited to Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, Massachusetts, to complete a 2 week residency and to print editions of a number of large linocuts which she has been working on for the past couple of years. The residency is nearing completion and she has an entirely new body of work which will hopefully be shown over the next several years.
Zea Mays was established in 2000 and is a studio, workshop, gallery, educational facility and research center dedicated to the safest and most sustainable printmaking practices available. Maria specifically sought out Zea Mays for this residency as it is quite similar to the vision for the Maritime Centre for Contemporary Print, which she will be opening in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, in the near future.
