Big Island artist shows eruption-inspired painting

Puna resident Bailey Ferguson will be showing a piece in a developing larger series of abstract artwork inspired by the recent Kilauea eruption. “I’m using this series to heal from some of the trauma felt as a result of mine and many of my friends’ lives being turned upside down by the recent eruption,” Ferguson said.
