Meadowlark Gallery: The Artist Biographies

Marlowe Urdahl

Marlowe Urdahl was born in 1932. He is a graduate of Montana State College (University) with a BA and MA in Fine Art Studies.

Since 1970, Marlowe has worked in watercolor, acrylic, oil, and bronze sculpture. Over the years he has chosen to participate in numerous juried art shows. He was an invited guest artist at the Northwest Rendezvous of Art. In the late 1970's, he was juried into the C. M. Russell Art Show and Auction in Great Falls, Montana. This show has ended and now a separate show is administered by the Russell museum. Other shows over the years have included the Kansas City Wild Life Exposition, the Cody Wyoming Art Show, the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland; and the Wildlife Exposition of Charleston, South Carolina. Other affiliations include the Society of Animal Artist’s 49th annual traveling exhibit entitled, “Art and The Animal”.

He was asked by the Fish and Game Commission to do the first design of the Montana Bird Stamp in 1978. The program lasted for three years and then was changed by the same department ending it. It then became the Montana Duck Stamp and eventually the stamp program was ended later as well on the state level. Marlowe also did the Upland Bird Stamp for the state of Washington in 1982.
