OTHER WORLDS

Cool, colorful paintings by Milanese artist Matteo Bergamasco are on display beginning today at MMGalleries in a solo show called “Other Worlds (the way vision becomes hyperspace).” The exhibit, organized in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco, opens today and runs through July 11. Bergamasco’s work has been described as an “ongoing personal exploration of the creative universe” and a translation of “a very lucid journey between what is transcendent and what is perceived.” Events include an opening reception today from 5 to 7 p.m.

MMGalleries is at 101 Townsend St., Suite 207, San Francisco. Call (415) 543-1550.
