See the Urban Yetti — Be the Urban Yetti — at Ever Gold Gallery on First Thursday

The United States has Bigfoot, while our neighbors to the north in Canada report seeing the Nuk-luk. Japan in turn has the Hibagon, and regions in South America have the Mapinguari. Around the world are legends of beasts that live just beyond the outskirts of society and are glimpsed only occasionally by humans. (Make that “humans with low-grade video equipment.”) One of the most famous is the Himalayan Yeti, also known by his nickname the Abominable Snowman, whose footprints were reportedly espied by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on their Everest ascent but whose existence has never been proven. Nearly as elusive is Aaron Eliah Terry's alter ego, the Urban Yetti, but fortunately for us the creature is making a rare appearance in the Tenderloin for Terry's solo show, “Resistance to the Indignities of Modern Life,” on Thursday night at Ever Gold Gallery.
