Workshop honors legacy of Dietrich Varez

  • Courtesy photo Wailoa Center, in partnership with the Volcano Art Center, is hosting a special workshop Wednesday, honoring the life, art and legacy of the late Dietrich Varez.

Join the Wailoa Center from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, for a special workshop in partnership with the Volcano Art Center honoring the life, art and legacy of the late Dietrich Varez.

Varez, best known for his extensive collection of linoleum block and screen printed images, died in August. More than 250 of his pieces have been published.


Each image would begin with reading and research. A particularly colorful or visual passage in a legend was often the stimulus.

Workshop participants can ink carved linoleum block prints depicting the flora and fauna found in the diverse ecosystems of the Big Island.


This workshop will be guided by Desiree Cruz and is open to the public.

Registration is not required; however, a $5 donation supply fee is graciously requested.
