Paul Waschka’s exhibit “On the Boards”, a collection of photographs from past productions in the Callaway Theater, is his second solo show at SAAC. Paul became interested in photography during his high school years while working on the yearbook and has continued to explore the hobby throughout his life. He was asked by SAAC to take photographs of the plays, and he now has over 700 photographs from nine productions, which he had to go through to compile items for this show. He has photographed plays from “Oliver” to “Frankenstein” and everything in between. “This show highlights how my technique and expertise has changed through the years,” said Waschka.
Not only has Waschka done a great job for SAAC in his photographic work, but he has also spent many volunteer hours serving in the past as president of the SAAC Board of Directors and as chairman of the Visual Arts Committee.
Waschka’s photograph entitled “Light Rain” won Best in Show at the 2011 SAAC Membership Show, and he recently had the third place photograph entitled “Lonely Highway” in SAAC’s “The ViewFinder” Photography Competition just last month.
