Dargate Galleries in Pittsburgh has been in the antique and fine arts business over twenty years. In the spring of 2002, Dan Zivko purchased the gallery from Larry and Carol Farley, who had developed the gallery into a successful auction house after acquiring the business from the original owner, Edward Darnell, in 1989.
After purchasing the gallery, the present owners moved the business from the Baum Boulevard location to a newly renovated 20,000 square feet gallery on North Lexington Avenue in Point Breeze.
