Meet the Team

OBS Gallery is staffed by a team of part time dedicated staff. Emily Glass curates the exhibitions, manages their installation and the accompanying marketing, publicity and education resources. Nicola Masters is the Galley Administrator and manages the staffing of the gallery, liaises with external audiences and ensures the smooth running of the exhibitions.  As Gallery Educator Sarah Pointon gives tours of the exhibitions to visiting groups and creates the Gallery Trails for children that accompany each show.

We are lucky to have a great team of Gallery Assistants who have a wide range of skills. These include designing publicity, hanging exhibits and packing precious objects to ensure  their safe transportation. Our weekend stewards manage the gallery when it is open to the public and give visitors an insight into the artwork on display.  During the week our wonderful team of volunteer stewards enable us to keep the gallery open to the Tonbridge School community and to visiting groups.  They have a wide range of interests and experience which they bring to the role.
