I was really looking forward to a meet and greet reception for the new Gibsons Public Art Gallery location last Saturday, Aug. 11, until a dog started running around the place like it was in a park.
I don’t hate animals, but I do have a right to attend a public function where food and drink are served to humans without dogs being present. I was told that dogs were allowed in the old building. So, what if two or three or even five dog owners brought their pets to an event? What’s the cut-off number of animals allowed at functions? In my opinion, leave your animals at home.
The only choice I have is to never again attend functions at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery. No, I did not stay for the event. I was too annoyed that some people are so ignorant. I guess GPAG won’t be getting my support. I was scheduled to display my artwork next year.
I hope the animal lovers, who can’t stay away from their pets for an hour or two, will compensate for lack of my donation.
