A senior at Bishop Lynch presented six of her pieces at the Afro Arts Festival in June.

Alexis Ikemba was a featured presenter at the festival, which celebrated African artists. She discussed her work, including acrylic and oil paintings and digital art.

Other presentations at the festival centered around cooking tutorials for African foods, fashion shows and more.

Ikemba is no stranger to the art world. In April, one of her pieces was chosen to be the cover art for “Waves: The Modern Green Book.” This publication, which was created in 2020, celebrates, uplifts and supports Black-owned businesses.
