Maureen O’Hara Ure is a Professor Lecturer at the University of Utah. The courses she has taught include Art 2400 for all the first year studio majors, Drawing I, and Senior Seminar. She has received many grants in support of her work, including the most recent one from the College of Fine Arts, which helped fund two large projects: "Love & Work", a solo show of paintings, and the publication of an artist’s book. "Seeing and Believing: A Traveler’s Sketchbook", the third volume to appear under her imprint, The Hand in Glove Press, features O’Hara Ure’s responses to the Romanesque art and architecture she encountered in central France. This year, Red Butte Press has published "Stranger and Stranger", a bestiary composed of her images and poems by Katharine Coles. She and the writer, her fellow University of Utah professor, have collaborated for over three decades. O'Hara Ure's next solo exhibit will open in February at Phillips Gallery.
