The Gallery Upstairs - 2002 - A Leach Family Exhibition
The Gallery Upstairs is above Reg Moon's Torquil Pottery in picturesque Henley-in-Arden. The selling exhibition featuring pots by David and John Leach, sculpture by Ben Leach and paintings by Elizabeth Travis (Ben's wife) was enhanced by the appearance of a number of pots by Bernard and David Leach loaned from private collections.
The preview was attended by all four artists and was opened by local pottery expert Henry Sandon.
