Jonathon Ray, owner and auctioneer, grew up in Grand Rapids Michigan. He became involved in the antique and collectibles business at the age of eight when he began helping his grandmother host local estate sales. Before attending college, he was a sales representative for Herman Miller. After college, he opened a successful retail specialty fashion store in Grand Rapids. He sold the business in the late 90s and moved East. Mr Ray settled in Adams, MA in 2001 and began providing estate and internet sale services to the Berkshires. In 2004, Mr Ray expanded his business and created Blue Dot Auctions & Estates, a auction service that provided on-location auctions and sales. The business continued to grow, and a gallery on Park St in Adams featuring antique collections and shows was opened in 2008. Due to increasing demand for his skilled services, Mr Ray expanded the business again in 2009 to a 7000 sq ft gallery on Hoosac St in Adams, MA.
Consignments are now being accepted for the fall 2009 fine art auction & future fine antique & modernism auctions. Call the gallery today for further information.
