Atlantic Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, an exhibition of figurative paintings by Robert Forte, on view from Tuesday, October 18 through Saturday, November 5, 2022. A
reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, October 20, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS explores the human figure as a catalyst for expressing the complexity of our relationships with each other and with the world around us. The maxim that "a picture is worth a thousand words" coalesces on the canvases, which tell their stories through the power of suggestion and body language. Robert Forte's paintings are held by numerous private collectors and are shown regularly at Atlantic Gallery and at the Meeting House Gallery in New Marlborough, Massachusetts. Forte's work is currently on view in the September issue of The American Art Collector.

Forte studied painting and drawing at the Art Students League and Spring Studio. He also attended
classes at the School of Visual Arts, and participated in a workshop with Philip Pearlstein at the National
Academy School of Fine Arts. Forte is a graduate of Harvard Law School and held the position of
Deputy Solicitor General of the State of New York.
