Student Art Overflows Lamarche Gallery at Annual Show Archives

Each year, a foundation set up by the former Delta Sigma/Delta Upsilon fraternity invites students to submit artwork to its wide-open art show for photos, sculptures, paintings, drawings, and mixed-media pieces. A small jury selects five submissions for cash prizes, this year honoring Ann Basu ’20, Annie Chen ’17, Diana Furukawa ’18, Nevan Swanson ’18, and Kelsey Gallagher ’17.

There is typically too much art to fit in Lamarche Gallery, so it is displayed not only in the gallery but also along the hallways outside.

This year’s exhibit was curated by Jenny Ibsen ’18 and Eliza Goodpasture ’18. Hanna Renedo ’18 and Anne McKee ’20 played violin for the Saturday evening, April 1, reception.

The Delta Sig house was well-known for attracting artistic and openminded students. After members sold the fraternity house in 1990, they set up two funds to support the arts at Bowdoin — one a scholarship and the other an activity fund.
