Continuing at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts through Sept. 26 is an art exhibit “The Cochran Collection: Graphics by 20th Century Masters.”

Earlier this month the Centre, on Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan and operated by the Coweta County School System, held a private reception celebrating the opening of The Cochran Collection exhibit.

Wes Cochran owns more than 400 pieces of modern art that he has collected since the ‘70s. Cochran and his wife Missy live in LaGrange.

The Cochran Collection displays 63 pieces currently hung all around the main halls of the Centre. Guests, on the night of the reception, milled about, soaking in the works of Warhol, Dali and Picasso, among many others.

“It’s a lot of fun. You meet a lot of great people,” Wes Cochran said of doing the exhibits. “This particular show has been on the road since 1985. It’s been all over the country, he said.
