Most striking in Newman's oeuvre are her renderings of the people and places of Savannah. A series of market and street life scenes portray the rich Gullah culture of the state's premier port city. Alive with luminous color and memorable characters, these watercolors exemplify both the enduring and endearing qualities of Newman's art. They are at once naive and accomplished.
