Stephen Eakin

Stephen Eakin [pronounced A-kin] received a B.F.A in both Studio Art and Film Studies from University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, where he worked with sculpture and video installation. Out of a desire to continually experiment across media, Eakin went on to receive an M.F.A. from the University of Minnesota with an emphasis in Experimental and Media Arts. There he studied video, film, sculpture, installation, and interactive modes of production. He returned to Stockton to teach as an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at University of the Pacific, Sacramento State University and American River College and in Sacramento.

Eakin has shown in juried exhibitions such as Open Door at Rosalux Gallery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The 4th National Juried Exhibition at Axis Gallery in Sacramento, The San Joaquin International Film Festival in Stockton, and the 2009 National Juried Exhibition at ACCI in Berkeley, California. He has exhibited video, film, installation, and sculptural projects in Berkeley, Minneapolis, Sacramento, Stockton, Kalamata, Greece and Winnipeg, Manitoba. He completed a residency at Kitchen Budapest during the summer of 2009, and will exhibit new work at a solo exhibition at Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery, University of Nevada, Reno.
