· Meredith Eaton of Russell Street, a Carlisle School seventh grader, won gold at the 14th Annual Bay State Winter Games' figure skating competition in Williamstown, Massachusetts and qualified to compete in the Inaugural Games of America in St. Louis this summer.

After a freak accident in her five-minute warm-up, Easton's coach, Dibi Leeming of the Colonial Figure Skating Club in Acton/Boxborough, wanted to scratch her from the competition, but Eaton went on to skate a flawless program of jumps and spins to music from Fantasia. "I think this is my best performance ever because of the way I pulled it together after the warm-up," said Eaton. "After winning gold here, I feel I can do anything."

The Bay State Winter Games, hosted by Massachusetts Amateur Sports Foundation, welcomed 560 skaters from around the state.

·Lonnie Harvey of Stoney Gate Way will be hosting the reception of a three-person show, along with area artists, Thomas DiSilvio and Linda Cargiuolo entitled "Monotypes-Singular Expressions" on Sunday, January 24 at the DeCordova Museum School Gallery. The reception will run from 2 to 4 p.m.

The show began on January 8 and will run until March 14. It features a collection of ground-breaking pieces in the exciting medium called monotype. Fragments of papers, memorabilia, richly textured oriental and handmade papers, as well as photographs, newspaper clips, and bits of the detritus and refuse of society are run through a printing press with all manners of ink and pigment, giving them a life of their own, combining with the vision and muse of the artist to form an extremely emotive, fractalized and engaging form of visual art.

·Kathleen McDonough of Maple Street will have an exhibit of new oil paintings at the Powers Gallery from February 4 to March 6. A reception is scheduled for Thursday evening, February 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. The gallery is located at 342 Great Road in Acton.
