It's going to be cold this weekend and if you're looking for something indoors, how about the third annual Harlem Fine Arts Show?

"I love the shape of the brownstone, of his suit." says Lenore Browne.

Lenore practiced law before she became a fulltime artist. She shoots on film, black and whites.

"Each image tells a story, but this work in progress tells the bigger story of Harlem in its second renaissance." says Browne.

And beginning tomorrow, her work will be on display at Riverside Church, where the third annual Harlem Fine Arts Show is being held. 100 chosen artists of African descent. Some emerging, others well established.

"I used elements of cubism," says Browne, "mostly female subjects."

Michael Escoffery says this forum offers him a different audience.

"I do a lot of gallery shows," says Escoffery, "don't get that at galleries."

And those art lovers will descend on Harlem from all over.

"We thought it was a great way to give back to our communities," says Browne, "more impactful in this area"

And it's the kind of event that can make an impact on an artist's career. It's what Lenore is hoping for.

"The images are taken from my eye," says Browne, "that captures my eye. That I do."
