INDIANAPOLIS---The Annunciation is one of the most popular subjects in Christian art, and early on, the Lily has been used to represent both Mary's virginity and spiritual purity and Christ’s Resurrection. Tonight, a new show at 10th West Gallery in Indianapolis opens with work by Philip Campbell and featuring one of his latest textile works, "Annunciation Lily." He is a 2016 Alpha & Omega Prize for Contemporary Religious Arts awardee. In 2017, he was also awarded one of the first DeHaan Artists of Distinction Awards by the Arts Council of Indianapolis.
