Mark Ogle was born in Helena, Montana in 1952. Raised and educated in Kalispell, his first venture into the art business was to help the Ace Powell Bronze Foundry. After three years of military service in Germany, Mark committed himself to a career as a painter. He studied art with Joe Abbrescia, Robert Cavanaugh, Ace Powell, and Bud Helbig. In 1982 Mark was the first recipient of the Ace Powell Memorial Award. From 1987 thru 1998 Mark was placed four times in the Top 100 of the prestigious Arts for the Parks competition. This competition is sponsored by the National Parks Academy of the Arts and is a national competition. Mark is among only a handful of American artists to receive this award four times. Selected as a delegate to represent Montana and the Arts by the Montana Chamber of Commerce, he traveled to Komoto, Japan as an honored guest.
