Beginning to build an impressive collection of contemporary ceramics in 1960s New York, a young, aspiring actor and singer met the well-known painter Joseph DiGiorgio, who stimulated his interest for paintings.

Over the last several decades, Dan Leach, the ever curious collector, has amassed a large collection of paintings, photographs, works on paper, ceramics, turned wood bowls, and art glass that reveals an eclectic eye and a love for beauty and craftsmanship.
