The Plainfield Public Library announces a new exhibit by Plainfield artist, Dennis Closs. The Library is displaying eleven pieces from his mixed media series.

Dennis Closs’ work is comprised of portrait, surrealist, and landscape paintings and drawings. He uses mixed media (oil, oil & chalk pastels, acrylic, fabrics, etc.). Many viewers are unable to tell which medium was used because of the similar effects of his works when completed. Although his canvas sizes vary from 16”x 20”, 24”x 30”, and 24”x 36”, through his work as a former billboard pictorial painter, he is accustomed to mast canvases up to 20 feet x 40 feet. 

This exhibit will be on display on the Main Reading Room wall until August 31, 2019. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Plainfield Public Library is located at 800 Park Avenue.  For hours of operation, call 908-757-1111 or check the website at
