About Gary Huber
Wyoming artist, Gary Huber, was raised in Pennsylvania Dutch farm country. Gary has always had both feet firmly planted in the great outdoors. His artistic development began at an early age accompanying his mother on Plein Air expeditions into the lush Pennsylvania countryside toting his own box of oil paints. While he was encouraged to keep painting he chose instead to pursue a scientific career that took him to Denver, Colorado. There he spent 25 years, eventually founding a software company devoted to computerized landscape visualization.
Feeling pressured by the fast-growing Denver suburbs, Gary moved north to Wyoming where range after range of forested mountains, snow-fed streams and broad, sage-covered plains gave him ample room to roam and inspiration to resume his painting.
Recent honors include several Best of Show and First Place awards in national exhibitions, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center Award and placement in the Pastel 100 competition. Gary is a Master Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado, recipient of a Master Circle Medallion from the International Association of Pastel Societies, a signature member of Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of the West Coast and Northwest Pastel Society, and a member of the American Impressionist Society and California Art Club. His work has been exhibited at the Butler Institute of American Art, The Haggin Museum, the National Arts Club in New York City and The Brinton Museum.
Gary spends his time painting, hiking and traveling the country’s National Parks and wilderness, seeking out-of-the-way places to gather new material and inspiration. He and his wife reside in Buffalo, Wyoming, with a breathtaking view of the Bighorn Mountains.
