A Little About Us
Opened in October, 1963, the Sporting Gallery is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, art galleries to feature sporting, wildlife and animal oriented art in the U.S. We hope you have a chance to stop by for a visit.
For over 50 years it has been our passion to represent fine art that reflects what's important to us and our way of life: equestrian sports, wildlife, our pets and our deep appreciation of the beautiful landscapes that surround us. We are so very lucky to live and work where we do and we wouldn't want it any other way.
We Represent Top Notch Contemporary Painters
Throughout our 50 year history we have forged strong relationships with several great painters. One of those painters is Peter Sculthorpe whom we have had the privilege to represent since 1991. Last fall we hosted our ninth Sculthorpe exhibition.
We are also so pleased to represent Linda Volrath - our only "local" artist. Her animal and sporting paintings are exceptional and it's been hard keeping them in stock!
Antiques & Collectibles
In addition to fine art, the gallery also displays unique and unusual sporting and animal related collectibles including fine porcelain, glassware, antique Austrian bronzes, silver, books and jewelry.
We currently have a very large collection of fox porcelains including Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester, Nymphenburg, Royal Copenhagen and others - over 50 examples and some very rare.

Come Visit Us
Our gallery is located in the historic Duffy House (built circa 1820) in the center of Middleburg, Virginia. You’ll discover that this uniquely beautiful building provides a perfect setting for the display of fine paintings and sculpture. Often described as comfortable and inviting, most rooms have a separate fireplace with antique mantle, hardwood floor and heart of pine paneling.
We look forward to meeting you.
