MEET THE HOSTS


Ray Taylor

The Fine Art Auction

As a Fine Arts Major at the University of South Florida, Mr. Taylor began his public speaking career at the Salvador Dali Museum in 1983.

"I was quite lucky to be a Charter Member of the first group of Docents. I'll never forget opening day! The Founders, Mr. Reynolds Morse and Mrs. Eleanor Morse had given us a wonderful series of educational lectures. It was quite an honor."

From there, Mr. Taylor moved to Honolulu to sell Asian art at Images International of Hawaii.” From 1985 to 1997 I was able to see the creation of over 200 print editions, all by the finest artists in Hawaii: Otsuka, Caroline Young, and Gary Hostellaro. Dining in Maui with Mr. Frederick Hart (Creator of the Tympanum at the National Cathedral) is one of my fondest memories. I'll never forget shaking Erte's hand at the New York ArtExpo.

In 1997, Mr. Taylor became an auctioneer aboard cruise ships - 178 cruises in all! "By 2001, I was ready to switch to the land based ballroom auctions. In 2005, I moved into television and never looked back. In 2010, I was lucky enough to have my own show. It seems the harder I work, the luckier I get!"
