Ace Powell (Asa L. Powell) ~ Famous Montana Artist
Ace Powell is a legend in the Montana western art scene. Ace was a prolific painter and sculptor who produced an incredible amount of material. The Kalispell dealers and collectors kept him busy painting as fast as he could put the work out. Ace was never as skilled as other early Montana painters like C.M. Russell, O.C. Seltzer, J.H. Sharp, Edgar Paxson, but there is a certain mystique within the Montana collecting and dealing fraternity about Ace Powell that many artists never acquire. It is a combination of being prolific, Powell’s charismatic personality and famed drinking sessions, being heavily marketed by several local art dealers, etc. Whatever the formula, Ace Powell has become a highly sought after Montana artist not only in his home state, but regionally as well.
