Shelley Calton: Hard Knocks: Rolling with the Derby Girls
Within the raucous world of roller derby, photographer Shelley Calton reveals an uplifting theme: empowerment. The artist, who has the dramatic eye of a veteran sports photographer and the empathy of a skilled portraitist, will sign Hard Knocks: Rolling with the Derby Girls, her new book of black-and-white photographs of the women athletes, today at Bering & James. Beautiful, badass and proud, the women of the roller derby are a compelling subject, especially in the hands of a photographer like Calton. 6 to 9 p.m. 805 Rhode Place.
