About the Author


Heather Kapplow (www.heatherkapplow.com) is one of the rarest kind of creatures you will find in Boston: a native Bostonian. A visual and performing artist as well as a writer, Heather travels frequently for projects in both spheres and has a very deep understanding of what it's like to be a newcomer in an unfamiliar city. It's among Heather's life goals to make Boston a more welcoming place, as well as to throw spotlights on Boston's many nuanced subcultures. You can find anything you need in Boston (except maybe a parking space in the winter) if you seek it out - take it from a native. Kim Windyka fell in love with Boston while growing up in nearby southern New Hampshire, and has never become tired of the city's beauty and historic charm in the 12 years she's been living there since attending Emerson College. A full-time copywriter with experience in multiple industries including travel, tech, and fashion, she has also written pieces for The Atlantic, New York Magazine, McSweeney's, and more.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
