Martha Featured on Windy City LIVE!

Martha's painting Zora the Conquerer was featured on Windy City Live this month.

For the second year in a row, the Harlem Fine Arts Show has come to Chicago. More than 70 African American artists from across the country and the world come to town for this show and sale.

You can find pieces from high-end collectors to modestly-priced new artists. They range from paintings to sculpture to jewelry. There's something for everyone.

This year, 30 of the artists at the Chicago show are local. The Harlem Fine Arts Show comes at the end of Chicago Artists Month.

Founder Dion Clarke brought a range of pieces to Windy City LIVE on Wednesday to show the scope of this year's show.

There is more than just art. A gala reception, a Halloween party, steppers and Sunday gospel music are all on the agenda as well.

Martha Wade, a painter, was instrumental in gathering the local artists for this show.
