LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A local art gallery opened its doors to kick off what is hoped to be a long showcase of Lawton's artistic talents.

The Native Hippy Gallery held a grand opening event Wednesday evening, bringing residents in for a showcase of all-local talent.

Live performances from Lawton musicians complemented the gallery, which Native Hippy owner Shailah Red Elk called an edgy, unique home for the city
s hidden talents.

She hoped the gallery will bring something special to both the Lawton community and the city as a whole.

"We wanted something different for the community to do, and I feel like doing little things like this will make Lawton a destination, she said, and I really, really, really feel like keeping it local, just like Small Business Saturdays coming up, is such a big deal.

Red Elk says that in addition to the gallery, she wants to continue to promote and showcase the local art community with classes and events.
