Laura Barnes

Laura T. Barnes lives in a converted barn on her farm, Barnesyard, in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  Many of the farm animals live on the ground floor of the barn while Laura and her husband live in the top floors.  Ideas for the stories and tales stem from day-to-day life watching and loving her animals at Barnesyard.

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.
