Welcome to the SHIM Art Network Artist Application for Individuals, and thank you for your interest in joining a SHIM Exhibitor Group.
Applications from individual artists seeking membership in SHIM Exhibitor Groups are accepted year-round on a rolling basis. Via the streamlined application below, you can apply to our in-house and partner programs all at once; no need to fill out multiple applications for multiple opportunities and no need to worry about missing deadlines for consideration.
Once in our system, your application will be held for 12 months and considered for the opportunities and membership groups to which you have applied, according to each group's calendar for enrollment. Upcoming deadlines specific to upcoming group exhibition projects or enrollment periods can be found at each group's info page at shhhim.com, where applicable.
Not sure which group(s) to apply for?
SHIM/Invitational and SHIM/Emerge are our premier in-house curated Exhibitor Groups for established mid-career artists and for young emerging artists, respectively. Either group is a great place to start your application!
Want to build your own SHIM Exhibitor Group?
Curators, collectives, and other like-minded organizations can apply to form their own Exhibitor Group as a Group Connector with SHIM!

Please review the information below describing our current program offerings for individual artists, provide us with your professional information, upload work sample images with descriptions, select which memberships you’d like to be considered for, and submit your non-refundable Application Fee(s).
Final acceptance of your application will be pending its review by our in-house and partner Exhibitor Group Connectors. If accepted for membership, all SHIM Exhibitor Groups operate with annual membership fees, and your Application Fee will be deducted from your first year's Membership Fee.
