Slice of paradise: Gauguin show opens at SAM

Artist Paul Gauguin told his friend Vincent van Gogh that he yearned for a “more natural, more primitive” life, and by 1891, he was sailing for Tahiti, looking for an uncorrupted Eden. He found a little less paradise than he wanted, but at the same time, a lot more than he bargained for. “Gauguin and Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise,” opening at 10 a.m. Thursday at Seattle Art Museum, is a “dazzling mix and match,” writes Seattle Times reviewer Michael Upchurch, of two cultures intersecting.

Note: The museum has a long list of lectures, films, even a Remix party associated with “Gauguin and Polynesia.” Go here for details.
