Puako starring in art exhibit
Scenes from the sunny, oceanside village of Puako will be showcased in an art show which opens from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at Barela Gallery at the Shops at Mauna Lani.
Titled “ENNS-Finding Paradise, Puako Big Island of Hawaii,” the evening event showcases the art of emerging artist Christian Enns. Meet the artist and enjoy wine, pupus and music by Travis Wittmeyer. A painting will be offered as a door prize and 2 percent of art sales will benefit the American Cancer Society.
“I have created a show of art representing my experience in Puako,” said Enns, who lives in the coastal community. His art depicts Puako’s varied landscapes and structures such as the landmark Holukoa Church, The General Store, ramshackle buildings and sprawling beaches. “It’s a story of light and appreciation for the natural beauty of the environment here on the Big Island of Hawaii.”
In addition to his artwork, the show debuts a video release on the artist and his art leading up the show by Kona videographers Al Ronzio and Janet Fisher. A world traveler and big wave surfer, Enns has studied art in more than 20 countries.
