The Art Box - Episode 212 - "Ink & Insight: The Art Journey of Sapira Cheuk"

Linda and Steve took a drive south to Las Vegas to interview the multi-talented artist and art administrator Sapira Cheuk. In this delightful chat, they explore her creative journey, artistic passions, and her role in supporting Nevada artists through her position at the Nevada Arts Council. Sapira joined the Nevada Arts Council as an Artist Service Program Specialist in 2022, where she provides support for current artists' services and programs and assists in developing new initiatives. In addition to her role at the NAC, she serves as an Art Commissioner for the City of Las Vegas and Art Editor for the museum of americana. A practicing artist and adjunct faculty member at the Nevada System of Higher Education, Sapira has over ten years of experience in public administration with the State of California and serves as a grant reader for the National Endowment for the Arts. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of California, Riverside, and her Master of Fine Arts from California State University, San Bernardino.

Sapira Cheuk is an ink painter and installation artist with a deep interest in proprioception and the ways of knowing through the body. Her work reflects or internalizes external experiences through these modes of knowledge. She has exhibited in numerous prestigious venues, including the Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Orange County Contemporary Art Center, Center for Contemporary Art Texas, Masur Museum, The Netura Museum, Yellowstone Art Museum, Rochester Contemporary Art Museum, and Culver Center for the Arts. Beyond her work with the Nevada Arts Council, she teaches at the College of Southern Nevada and serves as the Art Editor for the museum of americana, as well as a Commissioner on the City of Las Vegas Art Commission.
