'cOllide-o-scOpe 2013' photography exhibit opens at Carnegie Center


Tonawanda News — First and second place for best in show went to Joe Mac of Toronto. Other photographers, both professional and amateur, with images in the show include Glenn Murray, Jim Eichinger, Troy N. Teague, Marie Simoncelli and Jeff “ShockHer” Parker, 

Lambright — whose daughter appears in one of Mac’s prize-winning photos — raved about his work.

“Somehow with his photography he picks up not just the action, but the personality,” she said. “Somehow he captures a piece of them.”

The exhibit runs through June 1, when the photographs (which were donated by their photographers) will be auctioned off with the money donated to the Carnegie Center.

Until then, derby fans or those just curious about the sport can get a feel for it by visiting the exhibit from noon to 3 p.m. Wednesdays through Friday and noon to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
