Artist Objects To His Own Painting’s Title

A funny one from Janus, as reported in’s National Post: Artist, Gallery in Row Over Show’s Naughty Name. It seems artist Bill Rose created a painting titled, “Any Asshole Can Make Art.” Then the James Baird Gallery, with which Rose used to (but no longer does) have a commercial relationship, included the painting in a show the gallery promoted under the same name. Now the artist has hired a lawyer and sent a nastygram to the gallery, alleging that the show’s name is “offensive and defamatory.”
