RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK - VOTE #AOP2018

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Philip Campbell's "Annunciation Lily" (2018)
Dressed in his standard black T-shirt and black jeans, Philip Campbell watched knowingly as one of the gallery guests staggered drunkenly from his opening night reception. Then he looked at Ernest and said, “Good luck.” Painter, sculptor, ringmaster, and shaman, Campbell’s new show “Bulletproof” is about safety and protection from a society filled with dangers. His colorful quilts are made from kevlar, with images like a German Shepard, or a Lily. Campbell is also the 2016 winner of the Alpha Omega Prize, and voting for 2018 is now open to our followers through November 1st. That’s why Philip Campbell’s “Annunciation Lily” (2018) is our art of the week.
