Vegas, baby

On the off chance I get through tonight's opening of shows by Tony de Lautour at Hamish McKay's and Israel Birch at Tinakori without spending all my money on art, I'm headed for Rotorua tomorrow, for a few days of bike riding, sitting in hotpools, and plotting to overthrow the world.

Tony de Lautour openings always present a dilemma - whether to acquire many works by few artists, or only one/a few works by many artists. This question didn't arise at the enjoyable STart collecting art series at City gallery recently, but I'm keen to get to Christchurch to see Reboot to see how it has been addressed in the Jim Barr + Mary Barr collection. Odd that there's no hint of the show reaching Wellington.
