Overseen by Associate Director Matthew Seamus Callinan, the Gallery Assistantship Program offers Haverford and Bryn Mawr students the opportunity to learn about every aspect of exhibition-making.
Students participate in a range of activities, serving as docents and giving gallery tours; supporting visiting artist projects; assisting in exhibit installation and deinstallation, including lighting; designing virtual layouts for exhibits; managing the Exhibitions Program’s web presence and social media; researching and writing for exhibition catalogues, press releases, and related materials; and taking on all the in-between tasks essential to a successful exhibit.
The Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery is fully staffed for the 2019-20 academic year. Check back in August 2020 when we reopen the call for student applications.
To learn more about the program, contact Gallery Student Co-Managers Graham Mauro and Alyssa Kerper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alyssa is so excited to be one of the Co-Managers of the CFG this year! She is a senior from New York pursuing majors in art history and French. When she’s not in the gallery, Alyssa can be found singing in the Outskirts (women*s a cappella group), doing crossword puzzles, listening to music, or spending time with her hall as a PAF. This year, she is looking forward to exploring the Philly art scene and meeting the incredible artists and curators whose work is featured in the CFG!
Graham is thrilled to begin his third year as a Co-Manager of the CFG! He is a senior Linguistics major and Economics minor from Eugene, Oregon. Outside of the gallery, Graham spends his time working as a sound engineer for BLAST, helping to put on Spotlight Theatre’s next play, advising on UCA-Co, or finding new recipes to bake. He is excited for the coming shows and to see what the gallery can achieve this year!
Amolina is a first-year from Andover, Massachusetts and is extremely excited to be working at the CFG and to be surrounded by other people who love appreciating the arts too! Amolina is currently thinking about majoring in philosophy or psychology. When she’s not in the gallery, Amolina can be found cooking, listening to music, drawing with friends, being a part of theatre productions, or at the Schuylkill River with the crew team. She’s very excited to learn more about the gallery and to explore Philadelphia this year!
Sofia is a sophomore from New York intending to major in philosophy and double minor in art history and museum studies. When she’s not studying in Lutnick, Sofia enjoys reading, sculpting, and watching movies. Sofia also does CrossFit, is a PAF, and watches movies with the Bi-Co film society. She is so excited to see all the different exhibitions that come through the gallery!
Fiona is a sophomore (possible) Anthropology major from Cinnaminson, New Jersey with an interest in Health Studies. She is very grateful to be given the opportunity to work at the CFG, and is excited to expand her horizons through an artistic lens. When she isn’t working, Fiona can be found jumping and hurdling for the Haverford Women’s Track and Field team, binging countless tv shows, spending time with her hall as a CP, or in the library at 2 am finishing a paper. She is excited to see and be a part of the shows that come through the gallery this year!
Rishabh is a first-year from Bangalore, India considering a major in Political Science with a minor in either Photography or Math. When not working in the gallery, he can be found photographing events for The Office of Communications, debating with the Haverford Democrats, climbing with the Outdoor Club, or writing for the Bi-College News. This semester, he hopes to explore more of Philadelphia's vibrant food and street art scene, hike the Delaware Water Gap, and pet every dog that he sees on campus.
Athena is currently a first-year at Haverford College, where she is hoping to potentially double major in Linguistics/Languages and Visual Arts (although this is prone to about 2308 different changes). Coming from a British school in Bangkok, Thailand, she is excited about exploring the art and music scene here, as well as to see how things are spelt incorrectly, like 'colour' without a u, and 'aluminium' being pronounced 'aloo-mih-num', which is simply multiculturalism at its finest.
Matt is a Sophomore from Sandwich, Massachusetts, currently pursuing Haverford's 4+1 Chemical Engineering program. He is excited for the opportunity to work with the gallery this year and to get more involved with local art scene. When not at the gallery or studying in Lutnick, Matt is involved with club soccer, club rugby, and mock trial. He is very excited about this year's exhibits, and hopes that you all come experience the art, too.
Becca is a sophomore with a prospective major in Anthropology and a minor in Visual Studies from Malvern, PA. She’s super excited to be working at the gallery, but when she’s not working she is usually playing soccer, hiking, listening to music, reading, and hanging out with her family & friends! This semester, she can’t wait to get more involved with the art scene on campus, make new friends, travel into Philly more, and create her own ethnographic film!
Maggie Parham, a sophomore from New York City, is ecstatic to be working at the CFG this year. She plans to declare a major in Art History with a minor in Environmental Studies. When not at the gallery, Maggie can be found doing something theatre tech-y, working at the Haverfarm, watching movies, or cooking with her suitemates in her apartment. She can't wait to learn more about the behind-the-scenes of an art gallery this semester!
