Sue Bradford - Shadow VoicesROSEBURG, Ore., October 26, 2022 — Sue Bradford’s “Legacy” opens Monday, October 31, to both the general public and Umpqua Community College students. The Napa, Californian resident’s work examines the language used to define women using dress and apron motifs.

Bradford’s mixed-media collection examines ways in which feminine lineage manifest and how stories of women are told. Most recently, this exhibit has been shown in Utah and throughout California. Past exhibition locations include the Napa Valley Museum, the Berkeley Art Center, Di Rosa Preserve and the Crocker Museum.

“In my prints, pages are chosen for words used to describe girls and women and which speak specifically to being female and have been woven into our social structures, language and established hierarchies,” Bradford said of her art.

“Legacy” is open to the public and runs from October 31 through December 8. A reception and gallery talk will be held Thursday, Dec. 8 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
