LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Veterans showed off their artistic prowess Thursday at the annual Lawton Veterans Center art show.

"It made me feel that I want to do more and I didn't know I could draw," Minerva Camacho, one of the artists, said.

Veterans from throughout the area brought woodworking projects, paintings, clay sculptures and other pieces of art to present to the public.

The center accepted art from veterans, those in active duty and their family members to display.

The Lawton Veterans Center also holds a weekly art group, with some of its members presenting at Thursday's show.

The exhibition will be at the Veterans Center again Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
