AN ARTIST will be presenting her first exhibition in Stevenage when it opens to the public next week.

Alexis Penn-Carver – also known as Alexis Queen of Stories – will bring drawings, tile mosaics and collages made from wax, cloth, feathers, jewels, insects and other unexpected materials to the Gordon Craig Theatre foyer gallery, from Tuesday, April 12.

Some of the pictures in the exhibition, which runs until May 8, are part of a series from a story Alexis is writing and illustrating with a view to publishing.
