Jeff Evans is the former president and senior auctioneer of Green Valley Auctions, Inc. (1979-2008) and the head of GVA's specialty/catalogued auction division (1995-2008).

Effective January 1, 2009, Jeff and wife/co-owner Beverley Evans withdrew the catalogued auction division from Green Valley Auctions and launched a new company, Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates, Inc. through which they continue to conduct the quality catalogued auctions of Americana and Fine Antiques that brought national attention to Green Valley Auctions over the years. A new, state-of-the-art auction gallery was completed in June 2009, within walking distance of the former location.

Jeff Evans' expertise in early American glass and 18th and 19th century Shenandoah Valley furniture and decorative arts is recognized throughout Virginia and across the United States. He has worked as an appraiser and consultant for Virginia collections at the Woodrow Wilson Birthplace and the Frontier Culture Museum (both in Staunton, VA), the Stonewall Jackson House (Lexington, VA), the Shenandoah Valley Folk Art and Heritage Center (Dayton, VA), and the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley/MESDA (Winchester, VA).

Some of the numerous national institutions with which Evans has worked closely include the Corning Museum of Glass (Corning, NY), the Sandwich Glass Museum (Sandwich, MA), the Museum of American Glass in WV (Weston, WV), and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (Winston-Salem, NC).

Jeff has lectured and conducted classes on antiques including American glass and Shenandoah Valley pottery. In 2004, Jeff's extensive knowledge of Valley pottery was showcased when he served as guest curator and co-authored the accompanying exhibit catalogue, "A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware, The Rockingham County, Virginia School of Folk Pottery."

As a guest speaker at the 2009 MESDA furniture seminar, Jeff lectured on Shenandoah Valley of VA Seating Forms of the Late 18th to Early 20th Centuries, a subject he has been documenting and researching since the early 1970s. Jeff served as guest curator for the related exhibit "Come In and Have a Seat: Vernacular Chairs of the Shenandoah Valley," mounted at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley from December 2009 through June 2010. The exhibit yielded the exceptional Evans-authored catalogue/reference volume of the same name - the first catalogue ever published in conjunction with an MSV-organized changing exhibition.

The Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates company logo is inspired by the decoration found on the circa 1800 Shenandoah Valley of Virginia hanging cupboard that brought the highest price in the history of Jeff Evans' catalogued auctions. Boldly painted by Johannes Spitler in red, white and blue, and featuring a six-point buck bounding diagonally across the door panel, the cupboard achieved a record price for American painted furniture when it sold on November 13, 2004 for $962,500.
