Three solo shows open at the Danforth Museum in Framingham today. One of them is dedicated to the work of Masako Kamiya, who lives in Boston and teaches painting at Monserrat College of Art, her alma mater. She got a thumbs up from the International Association of Art Critics in 2006 for presenting the best gallery show of an emerging artist in New England. The other two shows are by Anne Neely, who paints landscape-based abstractions in colorful oils, and Robert Collins, who studied at Boston University under artists such as Philip Guston and Harold Torvish. He now teaches at art schools around New England (including the Danforth's own school). Opening receptions for all three shows will be this Saturday, March 20, at 6pm.
