    20th century

    Jerry Newman, a native Texan who earned his Master of Fine Arts Degree at the University of Southern California after graduating from the University of Texas and receiving a Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Lamar. Working primarily with watercolors and oil, his oil paintings invariably invite the viewer deep inside the work. In the instance of Garden Encounter - Chester, one is drawn into the garden space the artist has happened upon and so vividly captured.

    Newman makes great use of shading in the garden setting where green predominates, taking the palette in the foreground from light to the dark background, creating a sense of depth sprinkled with the sparkling colors of the flowers throughout.

    Featured in Southwest Art Magazine, Newman's works have received first-place honors at the Beaumont Art Museum and the Liberty Texas Annual Exhibition as well as at the Cloudcroft, New Mexico exhibition. Collections of his work have been installed at the Citizen National Bank at Dallas and the Pennzoil Oil Company at Houston.

    Adelle M. Gallery, Dallas (1986)
