Peachtree Art Gallery

When you think of Peachtree, one of the first things we hope you think of is beautiful art. This season, we’re highlighting out-of-this-world photography, debut author-illustrators, and illustrators you already know and love. So please enjoy this small glimpse of some of our favorite upcoming works.

Best Friend in the Whole World (March 2021)

This delightful story of a rabbit and his new pinecone friend is made all the sweeter by debut author-illustrator Sandra Salsbury’s charming watercolor illustrations that bring the cozy woodland setting to life.

Bird Show (March 2021)

Award-winning author-illustrator Susan Stockdale gives readers a front row seat at the Bird Show, where she uses acrylic portraits to portray the dazzling colors, diverse patterns, and fashionable feathered features of nature’s most stylish birds! Stockdale’s hand-painted birds rock their myriad outfits with grace and style. Get a peek at Stockdale’s illustration process here.

Mars Is (April 2021)

Former rocket engineer Suzanne Slade has paired her prose with remarkable photography of the Martian landscape from NASA’s HiRise Camera. It’s nothing short of amazing, astounding, and utterly out of this world.

Perdu (April 2021)

You may recognize Richard Jones’ beautiful art style from The Snow Lion and Paper Planes. This spring, Jones is back with Perdu–his debut as both author and illustrator–and it’s sure to stir your heart. His mixed paint-and-digital illustrations beautifully evoke all the emotions felt in the story. If you want to learn to draw our sweet pup for yourself, check out our draw-along video with Richard Jones!

The Smile Shop (April 2021)

With pen, ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations, Satoshi Kitamura’s charming and emotive artwork–reminiscent of Maurice Sendak and Tomie dePaola–provides an important reminder of the value of human connection in The Smile Shop.
