    Born in Memphis, Missouri, Alexandre Hogue moved as an infant with his family to Denton, Texas, where his mother taught him about "Mother Earth" while she gardened. Englishwoman Elizabeth Hillyar gave him his first art training in Denton, stressing mass over outline. While living in New York between 1921 and 1925, Hogue returned to the Southwest in the summers of 1921, 1922, and 1923, to study with Texas impressionist Frank Reaugh (1860-1945). Hogue also visited Taos, New Mexico, regularly in the 1920s, befriending artists W. Herbert Dunton, Andrew Dasburg, Oscar E. Berninghaus, and Ernest Blumenschein.

    Hogue exhibited in nearly all the major Texas exhibitions of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. He also showed periodically at the annuals at the National Academy of Design, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, and the Art Institute of Chicago, and in the Corcoran Biennial, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The Taos art colony inspired Hogue to attempt to create a similar colony near Glen Rose, Texas, in the late 1920s, according to Hogue scholar Susie Kalil. Hogue taught sketching classes for the Y.W.C.A. there and painted the Brazos and Paluxy rivers nearby.
