Gauguin And Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise At Seattle Art Museum

Seattle’s long, cold winter months tend to make me long for an exotic getaway. And since that isn’t in the plans this year, my form of escapism will be a trip to the Paul Gauguin exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. The brilliant hues and tropical landscapes of his Polynesian-inspired paintings are sure to provide some temporary winter relief.

The exhibit, titled Gauguin & Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise, is making its only U.S. stop at SAM Downtown from February 9 through April 29. It includes 50 paintings, sculptures and other works by Gauguin along with 60 other Polynesian sculptures that inspired him.

The exhibit focuses on the exotic and primitive life Gauguin desired and the inspiration he drew from his time spent in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands.

Make sure to reserve your tickets for the exhibit today.
