Foxes on the Fence are Back.....

Bidding will start April 1, 2019. The Middleburg Garden Club will be auctioning off 36 handpainted Foxes leaping on the fences on the corner of West Washington Street and Pendleton Street in historic downtown Middleburg, Virginia. New this year we have added several Hounds and also look for a few female Foxes. Whether you call our Hunt Country home or your favorite destination, this is an opportunity for you to own an original piece of art in the spirit of our Village. Every artist donated their time and vision for their unique art piece, representing many genres and techniques. All of our Foxes sponsored by schools were completed by the children themselves! Each Fox or Hound tells a story and is rich in detail and a wonderful keepsake for years to come. 

Each Fox is 4 foot long and made from a composite material that will stand the test of time indoors in your home or barn or even outside in the garden.  Every Fox and Hound has hooks and wire on the back ready to hang or you could mount them on a post. Winning bidder is responsible for picking up the art May 18, 9-4:00pm or arranging shipping by June 1 through Middleburg Garden Club

Give a little and get a lot in return....

We are a small town with a big heart! Many of our businesses, schools, professionals and shops sponsored a Fox to support knowing all the funds were to go to town beautification, promotion of the arts and community projects.

The Middleburg Arts Council and The Middleburg Garden Club are pleased to announce an initiative to commission a large bronze monument of one of our most enduring and endearing town symbols, the Fox. Resident artist Goksin Carey will create the six foot sculpture in clay in the AiM Gallery at 102 W. Washington Street, Middleburg, so that residents and visitors can see the work as it progresses. After the clay sculpture is completed,it will be taken to a local foundry where the bronze monument will be cast. The Fox is to be placed in the heart of our town for all to enjoy. We can raise the rest of the funds with your help!

We greatly appreciate any donation you are able to make.
