The Peachtree Corners Business Association's Wednesday evening event was all about the arts.
Objet d'Art Gallery and Studios, located in the Village at Peachtree Corners shopping center, hosted the PCBA's spring gathering where over 80 members and their guests mixed and mingled and strolled through the Peachtree Corners art gallery.
"We're delighted to be able to host the PCBA event," said Sheri Snyder, the art gallery's owner. "We're the best kept secret in Peachtree Corners, but we hope now all of you will be back," said Snyder who opened her business last fall.
And of course, the evening would not have been complete without food - Flying Biscuit Cafe, located in the same shopping center, catered the affair. The popular eatery served an array of dishes including Shrimp & Grits, a green salad topped with fresh sliced strawberries and other delicious dishes.
