Paul Gauguin: The Art of Invention 

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 15
Price: $6-$15, free on Friday
While Paul Gauguin is perhaps best known for his lush paintings of Tahiti, he was an inveterate experimenter (as most artists are). Gauguin's prodigious output in all media is showcased in the new exhibition at Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org), Paul Gauguin: The Art of Invention. Built around a loan of 55 pieces by Danish institution Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, The Art of Invention includes examples of Gauguin's early Impressionist works, woodcarvings, prints, sculptures and writings. It includes a rare edition of the artist's manuscript Modern Thought and Catholicism, which was gifted to the museum by actor and art collector Vincent Price. The Art of Invention is on display in the main exhibition gallery Tuesday through Sunday (July 21 to September 15). Admission is $6 to $15, and free on Fridays.
