Assistant Professor of Art – Painting and Drawing

Nishiki Sugawara-Beda is a visual artist who works primarily on painting and sculptural installation. As she was born and raised in Japan and immigrated to the U.S. as a young adult, her work deals with the examination of various cultures. To speak to the core of humanity, she seeks the connections among cultures from both the past and present. Currently she is researching Japanese traditional activities including Chado (tea ceremony) and Tenkoku (seal).

Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions as well as numerous group shows nationally and internationally. She has been shortlisted for various art competitions, including the Door Prize (Bristol, England), ArtGemini Prize (London) and the Prince Street Gallery 7th Annual Juried Exhibition (New York). Her work has been published in the 87th issue of New American Paintings; Fresh Paint Magazine; Expose Art Magazine: Special Edition; AEQAI; and 100 days 100 women. She is a 2018 Idaho Art Fellow, awarded by the Idaho Commission on the Arts and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
