reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have turned up in otn's email:  a wellington dealer ended up dancing on the bar at an art fair after match function owned and operated by two other art dealers • auckland art gallery was required to secure detailed arboreal permissions before tying a rooftop sculpture to a tree • rumours about that a senior position at the auckland art school has been advertised before the completion of the current contract • fisticuffs when an auckland dealer took offence at a damien hirst work being given as a gift • ronnie van hout is winging his way to lower hutt to measure them up for a giant robot sculpture • a growing maturity as police are not called to a full beaver photographic exhibition at an auckland dealer • art made from spit and sultana bran sells to australian collector at art fair • any lavish additions, changes to outright lies, indignant denials or embellishments gratefully received and always, and we mean always, rewarded.
