"Duende: The Art of Anthony Quinn"
“The painter leaves his mark,” Anthony Qunn said. He meant that literally and figuratively. Quinn, who spent the last five years of his life in Bristol before his death in 2001, made quite a mark in more than 160 roles in films, TV shows and onstage, and also expressed himself in a variety of media: pencil, oils, marble, and wood. “Duende: The Art of Anthony Quinn” (the title is the Spanish word for the source of creative inspiration) showcases 90 objects, including small sketches, drawings, paintings, and sculptures, plus photos of Quinn at work and artifacts from his studio (a workbench, tools). The exhibit is at the Gallery at the Narrows Center For the Arts, 16 Anawan St, Fall River, MA, through December 29. Gallery director Debra Charlebois says, “This exhibition will serve as an extraordinary educational tool for art students . . . Experiencing the sheer volume of Quinn’s artwork will be an inspiring journey for budding artists.” The space is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 5 pm | 508.324.1926 | narrowscenter.org
