LOS ANGELES, CA (ANS-SEPT. 16 2016) Renowned artist Anne Neilson will release her new book, “Angels: The Collector’s Edition” through a national philanthropic campaign launching in New York City and Los Angeles on Oct. 10, to recognize World Homeless Day.
According to a news release, “Angels: Collector’s Edition” and the upcoming campaign, which will include “Help for the Homeless” events in Nov. and Dec. and throughout 2017, further serves Neilson’s “Painting with a Purpose” philosophy, to give back with every product she creates.
Neilson’s Angels have been praised by a number of celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Kathie Lee Gifford and actress Roma Downey.
In honor of World Homeless Day and the book launch, Neilson is donating proceeds from her sales to the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM), a collaborative of nearly 300 rescue missions across North America, and to other homeless organizations that she has been partnering with during her career.
The news release said Neilson and others will work at the missions in person and create opportunities for others to join.
To commemorate the book release, proceeds of inspirational items from her Anne Neilson Home Collection will be given to charity partners, to bring honor to those struggling through life issues and to others often forgotten.
Anne Neilson Home has also partnered with author Ron Hall in support of the upcoming movie “Same Kind of Different as Me” (Paramount/Feb. 2017), starring Renee Zellweger, Greg Kinnear and Djimon Hounsou. It’s an adaptation of Hall’s book, which tells the inspiring story of how a friendship with a homeless man changed his life.
“Angels: The Collector’s Edition” will include some of the most popular content from Neilson’s first inspirational art book, “Angels in Our Midst,” plus new angels images and an additional 156 pages, highlighting stories from music artists Amy Grant, Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman and Audio Adrenaline.
“I heard that still small voice speak to my heart-telling me to use my passion and talent for the greater good of humanity,” said Neilson speaking in the news release.
She added, “This ignited my desire to use my talent to give back to those in need. I painted my first angel in 2003, experimenting with oil paints, texture and color. These were the first paintings in my Angel series, which became a reflection of my faith.”
“Angels: The Collector’s Edition” will be available for pre-order starting Oct.10, 2016.
