Local Artist Timothy Hedden Blesses Dove CenterMary Lee, | 0 Comments
Timothy Hedden doesn’t just want his artwork to be displayed and sold, he wants it to make a difference. His Hope Angel now inspires hope in the women and children at the Dove Center, a division of the Macon Rescue Mission for victims of domestic violence and their children.
Hedden created 15 collages of angels for his Angels of Virtue collection, displayed at the Atlanta International Airport in 2009. Hedden states: “The collection was created with intention to make a difference in the community and people’s lives.” This past November, he donated two of the 32”x48” embellished collage giclee prints to the Kevin Brown/Five Star Mazda Celebrity Classic Auction, benefitting the Macon Rescue Mission. Both pieces sold.
Beverly Olson, board chairperson at the Mission, purchased the Hope Angel. She donated the artwork back to the Mission to be enjoyed by the residents. Hedden was thrilled. “The Hope Angel now residing in the Dove Center means a great deal to me,” he states. Olson is equally excited: “Timothy’s generosity through his art is exemplary. It’s a wonderful idea he had for the Angels of Virtue. Hopefully through his generosity the women of the Dove Center will feel the hope that the angel represents.”
But Hedden’s benevolence does not stop there. With the help of local photographer Michael Williams, he now has signed and numbered, limited edition prints of the Hope Angel available upon request. One-third of the proceeds will be donated to the Mission. Hedden believes God is giving him the opportunity to further impact lives. He asserts “It’s not about me; these angels are on a mission themselves.”
Williams creates the prints by photographing the angels and printing them using the finest Epson archival inks and premium glossy Epson paper. They are selling the 18”x24” matted prints for $150.00.
