Groves art show highlights local artist

The Elora Arts Council, in conjunction with the art committee at Groves Memorial Community Hos­pital, has announced a display of the works of Fergus artist Dennis Novosad in the hospital lobby, and youth art from stu­dents at Centre Dufferin District High School in Shelburne, will be exhibited in the day surgery corridor and wait­ing room.
Novosad’s love of the out­doors, eye for colour and composition, and  attention to de­tail have helped him produce vibrant water colours, oils, acrylic, charcoals, and chalk pastels.
The landscapes, flow­ers, and birds will enliven the lobby area on the main floor for visitors, patients, and staff until the end of April. 
Novosad has been drawing and painting from an early age.  He is an avid photographer and former mechanical draftsman. His inspiration is derived from many voyages in Canada, Asia, and Australia.
He is a certified art framer and operates an art framing business, Framing Square, and a private gallery in his century stone home in Fergus.
In the day surgery corridor at the hospital, art students of teacher June Sulley, of Shelburne, have loaned still life pencil drawings, exhibited against colourful backgrounds.
There are also a number of small, coloured pencil city­scapes and waterscapes as seen through a window.
