On her website, Maine painter Lane Williamson says this of her landscape works: "A winter thicket covered at dawn with hoary frost or the underside of an ancient tree uprooted in a damp forest challenge me to focus on what at first might seem insignificant: the oddity of a moment in portrait, the land as still life." Well put. You can see Williamson's show "Out in the Open Secrets" at the Firehouse Center for the Arts Gallery today through June 2. Reception May 17. Firehouse Center for the Arts, 1 Market Square, Newburyport. 978-462-7336. firehouse.org
