SAM Features “Gaugin Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise”

French-born artist Paul Gaugin spent most of his adult life in French Polynesia. He is considered a leader in the French Post-Impressionist era. Starting February 9, the Seattle Art Museum is pleased to announce the opening of the touring exhibit “Gaugin Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise”. SAM Downtown has extended its open hours to make it easy to see the exhibit. Between February 9 and April 29, SAM’s hours will be: Tuesday – Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm; Thursday & Friday 10:00am – 9:00pm; and First Thursdays (March 1 & April 5) 10:00am – midnight. The museum is closed on Mondays, except Presidents Day, Monday, February 20.

Come see nearly 60 of the artist’s paintings, sculptures and other works. Gaugin’s paintings alone are splashed with color and filled with scenes of island life – it’s beautiful people and idyllic landscape. The Seattle Art Museum and Acoustiguide have developed an insightful audio guide with commentary about selected works in the exhibition. You can ownload the podcast or iPhone/Android application to your digital device at http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/gauguin before you head to the museum.

Is yellow your color? The Seattle Art Museum is offering free admission for the first 100 people in line wearing yellow on opening day for Gauguin & Polynesia on Thursday, February 9. Keep warm with free pastries and coffee from SAM’s own TASTE Restaurant and Events for the first 100 too.

SAM members will be the first to see “Gauguin & Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise” at a special members-only previews on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 7 and 8. If you are a museum member (or become one) you will be entered to win a 7-night cruise to Tahiti, according to the Seattle Art Museum website. Click HERE for details.
