The de Young will host painter Felicia Forte through Jan. 5, as part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s artist-in-residence program.

Forte’s work ranges from portraits and still lifes, to natural landscapes and cityscapes. Using a soft, ethereal style, Forte seeks to portray her subjects truthfully while conveying insight into the intangible feelings they conjure. She enjoys painting “alla prima” or wet-on-wet to avoid expectations about the final outcome of a piece and instead focuses on the process.

An experienced painting and drawing instructor, Forte currently teaches at Sadie Valeri Atelier and has taught at a number of institutions, including the San Jose Museum of Art and the Walt Disney Family Museum.

Forte will bring her teaching expertise and a live demonstration of her artistic process to the de Young during her residency. She will paint a life-sized portrait of a live model and will have stations with supplies set up for visitors to learn and paint alongside her.

Originally from Los Angeles, Forte is now based in San Francisco. She maintains a studio in the Mission district, where she works on commissioned portraiture and gallery projects, in addition to offering private instruction to painting and drawing students.

Forte studied at the California Art Institute and the Art Students League of New York, and her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout California. In a new relationship with Principle Gallery in Alexandria, Va., Forte’s work is featured in the current exhibition, “Women Painting Women: (R)evolution,” and will appear in Principle Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, “Small Works.”

Patrons are invited to visit Forte in the Kimball Education Gallery Wednesdays through Sundays from 1-5 p.m. and Fridays 1-5 p.m. and 6-8:30 p.m.
