«Nature's 'Souvenirs' — veteran artist, newcomer display disparate works»
In her exhibition of paintings and photographs, "Souvenirs," at the Finch Lane Gallery, Maureen O'Hara Ure has exposed her Gaelic roots — deep roots, tangled by memories of childhood, Catholicism, pedantry and the runes of modern art. "Souvenirs" — a visual account of the artist's visit to Scotland and Ireland with her husband Lincoln Ure, an Episcopal priest — will challenge viewers' perceptions of the British Isles.  Article by Dave Gagon in: Deseret Morning News & deseretnews.com - November 23, 2003.
