LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Local artists set up their best work this weekend in an art show that has been going on for more than 25 years.

All around Saint Paul's United Methodist Church, works of art from Oklahoman artist were displayed. It is free for people to come and enjoy, and maybe buy some art. They also had handmade jewelry, baskets and even hand crafted chocolates.

One of the featured artist at the show has been painting for 20 years.

"Well I was in a car wreck about 21 years ago, and I was working for a bank,” said JoAnn Hunt, artist. “I decided while I was recuperating that I wanted to do something to occupy my time. During those five months, I picked up paints and brushes, and starting painting."

Hunt paints scriptures on her art, and says the words of the bible are her inspiration.

The show continues Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at the church on 910 Northwest 38th Street in Lawton.
