Hi I’m Amy and I am a keeper of art at TWAM. My background is in collections (particularly paintings) and exhibitions, as I have an MA in Art History and worked as the Keeper of Art at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle before moving to TWAM. I currently work across the three art galleries we manage; the Laing and Hatton in Newcastle and the Shipley in Gateshead.
