In another most-but-not-all type situation, a majority of Bergamot Station’s galleries open new shows on Saturday. But don’t let the coordinated date fool you, the galleries’ hours are all over the place, with some starting as early as 4, a few going as late as 9, and most falling somewhere in between. Watch for big solo shows from Greg Colson, Laura Forman, and J.A. Feng at Craig Krull; Eric Nash and Terry Leness at Skidmore; Patty Wickman and Ron Rizk at Lora Schlesinger; David Jien at Richard Heller; and Jon Krawcyzk at Leslie Sacks. But don’t miss Lois Lambert Gallery’s big, sassy, timely group show Truthiness, or the return of BG Gallery to the Berg, re-inaugurating their tenure after a sojourn up on Ocean Park, with the group show, The Body In Parts.

Outside of Bergamot, Galia Linn and the team of David McDonald & Raychael Stine show at the nearby quasi-residential project space Five Car Garage — a high-end carport transformed into a pristine gallery space behind a hillside house off Navy Street. They get started at noon and the address is shared upon your RSVP. Later that night, besequined and bunny-eared mixed media impresario Aaron Axelrod takes over at Abbot Kinney’s Tarryn Teresa Gallery; and the Ben Maltz Gallery at OTIS College debuts Centennial, a group show featuring the all-stars of 100 years of creative education at the institution.
