Joe Huber was born in Austria in 1930, and from his youth has pursued his painting as a favourite hobby. He arrived in Australia with his artist wife Chris in 1955. Since then he has enjoyed a rewarding business career and when possible joins their many artistic friends on painting trips all over the country.
His major exhibition was in 1974 at the Cocks Gallery in Mosman which was so successful a further exhibition was held the following year. Joe’s next major exhibition was in 1980 at Strawberry Hill Gallery in Sydney and from then on to date Proud’s Gallery in Sydney have held annual or biannual exhibitions of his work.
In 1982 Joe received the first prize award at the Blacktown City Council Art Awards and he has achieved many Highly Commended and Open Purchase awards for his works. He is included in Max Germaine’s book “Artists and Galleries of Australia” and he was an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society in Sydney. His paintings are in private collections in Europe, the United States of America, North Africa and Australia, and his works are represented in many corporate art collections.
