Mary Woronov: paintings

 Mary P. Woronov ’64 is an actor, author and artist — “a painter of allegorical emotional states; physicality and immediate sensual presence. . .”   Her art focuses on life in Los Angeles — particularly on women and their choices.  A member of Andy Warhol’s Factory, she appeared in Chelsea Girls and later worked with Roger Corman and Paul Bartel starring in the latter’s film, Eating Raoul.  Ms. Woronov is Packer’s 2008 Founders Day speaker and will be working with our students for three days as Artist in Residence.

Asanda Laxa, RITES AND WRONGS:

photographs, drawings, and paintings of passage and Apartheid in South Africa

Asanda Laxa (b. 1980) is a self-taught artist residing in Port Elizabeth, located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.  Asanda makes a living painting signs and tee-shirts.  He works with graphite, photography, and acrylic. Many Packer students and faculty members have met Asanda and are familiar with his work through service collaborations between Packer and “ArtWorks for Youth” programs in South Africa during spring and summer breaks. We are proud to present his work, which speaks of South Africa's past and present.
