African American Fine Art Show Chicago Debuts in Historic Bronzeville:
Parkway Ballroom Serves as Showcase for Major Art Exhibition Sept. 28-30, 2007

(Chicago, IL) Aug. 27, 2007 – Art Speaks to the Heart is the theme for the African American Fine Art Show Chicago (AAFASC), a dynamic new showcase featuring African American and African-inspired collectable fine art. This world-class event will bring together artists, galleries and art dealers under one roof for a weekend of art exhibitions, lectures and workshop demonstrations. The debut takes place in historic Bronzeville – the Mecca for African American cultural exhibition in Chicago – from Friday, September 28 to Sunday, September 30, 2007 at the Parkway Ballroom located at 4455 S. ML King Drive. Public exhibition hours are 10:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturday and 11:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sunday.

“This event presents a unique opportunity for art lovers, supporters, collectors or the ‘art curious’ to meet and talk to these gifted artists. They are very approachable and genuinely interested in informing the public about their techniques, influences and inspirations,” said John A. Martin, show organizer. Martin, an art consultant and event manager, is president of the Chicago-based JP Martin Group.

Artists, gallery owners and art dealers will display original works of art, including oil and acrylic paintings, collages, sculptures, photography and fine art prints on paper, all of which will be available for purchase. In addition, attendees are invited to participate in lectures and workshops scheduled throughout the weekend. AAFASC is an event for the entire family that examines the beauty of visual arts through the African American lens.

To kick-off the festivities, Inner-City Underwriting Agency will sponsor a Private Preview Reception on Friday evening from 6:00 to 10:00 pm for sponsors, participating artists, gallery owners, media and other special guests. This reception will provide an opportunity for all of the participating exhibitors to meet and mingle prior to the public opening.

Art consultant Madeline Murphy Rabb, president of Murphy Rabb Inc., will present a lecture titled “Defining Fine Art as It Relates to the African Diaspora” on Saturday from
1:00 – 2:30 pm. Murphy Rabb has served as a consultant to curators, business owners, individual collectors, architects, interior designers and real estate developers. A partial list
of her clients includes Ariel Capital Management, Northern Trust Chicago South Financial Center, UBM Construction Management, Shore Bank, Evanston Hospitals and University of Chicago Department of History.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
