At an unprecedented pace, we're witnessing a massive transformation of San Francisco; and cities are certainly unique in the dynamic way they process time.  Whether one identifies with preservation or progress, is attracted by the geometry of the skyline or the oxidization of old steel, it is an auspicious moment in which to get a diverse set of artistic impressions on the theme of urban transformation. The "Ancient City" exhibition, running at the spacious, soon to be torn down, Hayes Valley Market Gallery, presents works by 15 Bay Area artists working in very diverse media: from hanging mobile, to concrete and recycled material sculpture, to encaustic lightbox painting, and time-lapse still life.
