Upcoming Special Events

Architecture JanFeb2022

Peachtree City Library Art Initiative presents: "Architecture: Loved, Lauded, Lamented"
January 3rd — February 28th, 2022
—Peachtree City Library

The Art Initiative is beginning its 7th successful year in featuring national, regional, and locally recognized fine artists. Patsy Gullette (Fayetteville artist) and Courtney Hurst (photographer) are the featured artists for January-February 2022 Peachtree City Library Art Initiative. The Peachtree City Library also provides permanent exhibit space for Fayette Society of Fine Art, Newnan-Coweta Art Association, and the Peachtree City Photography Club. 

The historical nature and architecture of the Fayetteville courthouse square drew Gullett to locate to the area in 1980. Gullett served on the Fayette Main Street committee and the Old Courthouse Art Show for over 25 years, and created 3 murals in the area with her husband. During this time, Gullett was inspired by her love of historical buildings and cities to create work consisting of layers of watercolor paper making them part sculpture and part watercolors. She has exhibited in the top 100 National Park Exhibit and was commissioned by US Capital historical group to do a drawing of the Capital.  

Courtney Hurst is an Atlanta based photographer, graphic designer & curator. Her work focuses on photographing abandoned and forgotten spaces. “I thrive in spaces of ambiguity and my work tends to as well, questioning more often than providing answers. “ Hurst’s recurring subjects focuses on life, death, and afterlife in the south. Hurst’s photographs allude to faith and spiritualism. Vacant places unexpectedly become greenhouses with images of kitsch and salvage.  For more information on Courtney and her work visit https://courtneyforthurst.com.

Tell Me, Pretty Maiden by Rhys Bowen
It’s wintertime in New York, and for the first time since Irish immigrant Molly Murphy started her early-twentieth-century detective agency, she is completely snowed in with work. While she’s proving to be quite the entrepreneur and is very much in demand by some of Broadway’s brightest stars and Fifth Avenue’s richest families, she has to grudgingly admit that if she’s going to work more than one case at a time, then she’s going to need some help. Molly’s beau, the recently and wrongly suspended police captain Daniel Sullivan, would make an ideal associate, but before they can agree on the terms of his employment, they stumble upon a young woman lying unconscious in the middle of a snow-covered Central Park. When the woman wakes up she is disorientated and has and lost her ability to speak, the authorities are about to pack her off to an insane asylum when Molly can’t help but step in and take on yet another case. ~from Goodreads.com
