Kelly is a senior Philosophy major from Seoul Korea. This past summer, she interned with the Education Department at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where she got to teach Ellsworth Kelly to 7-year-olds. This semester, she is exploring how the development of technology affects and reshapes the notion of authenticity behind art and spaces of art through her thesis research. Outside of school, Kelly can be found in Leeds 222 hanging out with her suitemates. Kelly feels both excited and already nostalgic about starting her fourth year at CFG, since working here has been one of her most eye opening experiences of college.
Sofia is a senior from Denver, Colorado majoring in Biology and minoring in Neuroscience. When she is not in the gallery, she fences saber for Haverford's fencing team, works on her thesis about protein aggregative disease, and tries to check some films off of her ever-lengthening list of recommendations. She loves Islamic and modernist architecture and the works of Velázquez, and she has found working at the CFG since freshman year to be an invaluable, joyful and enriching experience.

Grace is a junior Art History and English Literature major from London, England, on exchange from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Grace loves all things art, both experiencing it and making it herself. She has a particular flare for Illustration since it became her concentration during an Art Foundation at Arts University Bournemouth. This summer she worked for the up and coming contemporary art gallery Bosse and Baum in Peckham, London, where she continued to explore the art world and develop a keen interest in Curating. When she is not studying, Grace is exploring Philadelphia and further afield. She is particularly fond of the Barnes Foundation, and could happily spend hours walking through its rooms and hallways, surrounded by its world-class collection of art and antiques. Grace is really enjoying her time in the States, and is excited to be working and learning with the CFG this year.
Courtney is a senior from Appomattox, Virginia. She is an English major who (surprisingly) loves to read and write. Last summer she worked with the Editorial and Graphic Design Department at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and handled the marketing and publicity for a new children's book release. She enjoys exploring the intersections of art and literature, especially new and diverse forms of visual and linguistic literacy, and is excited to do so more intentionally in her thesis as well as in an upcoming show about disability, ethics, and portraiture that she is co-curating. In her free time, she can be found playing lacrosse for the Haverford Varsity team or working her way through Parks & Rec and some mac & cheese. This is her second year working at the CFG.

Andreas is a senior Economics major from East Palo Alto, California. When he’s not in the gallery, you should probably find him working on his thesis on Behavioral Economics, but are more likely to find him spending time with friends. He’s the captain of the Club Soccer team and a co-head of the Board Games Club. He is a man of many interests, but enjoys making pottery and blowing glass when he’s home for the summer and is looking to work in the intersection of Economics and Design upon graduating this year. This is his first year working at CFG, so don’t go too hard on him.
Rachel is a senior English major from Beijing, China. She worked at CFG over this past summer helping to plan and put together various exhibitions, as well as working on the gallery’s online platform. She is particularly interested in the intersections between art, literature, and race, and enjoys exploring the different connections between issues of identity and aesthetic. In her free time, Rachel is often curled up in bed with cookies and Netflix, although she occasionally remembers to read a good book or spend some time writing and drawing. She believes in the potential for art to introduce or further important dialogues and is very excited to work at CFG this year.
