PORTSMOUTH, VA – Photographer Glen McClure’s unique photographs of Virginia roller derby girls will be on display at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Museum starting on April 13, 2013.  Guests of the museum will have the chance to see the exhibit “{Derby Girls} Portraits by Glen McClure” until June 30, 2013 in the Tom and Julia Riddle Sports Gallery. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held on April 13 at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Museum at 6 p.m. with appearances from the artist and derby girls in the portraits.

The exhibit features cotton rag, digital portraits of three teams­—The Dominion Derby Girls of Virginia Beach, Star City Roller Girls of Roanoke and River City Roller Girls of Richmond. This gritty, colorful, and fun collection showcases the determination, spunk and drive it takes to be a derby girl.
