Meadowlark Gallery: The Artist Biographies

Walt Marten

Walt Marten was born on January 11, 1943. He graduated from the University of Montana and eventually taught art and biology in Fort Benton and Columbus, Montana. When the Columbus school cut the arts program to fund the sports programs, it was a career changer for him. Walter soon had his own frame shop and gallery for a brief period but his real interest was art and fur trade history. We met Walt in 1981 and encouraged his artwork career. Walt passed away on July 28, 2018 after losing his wife, Sharon, on July 3, 2018.
