The SHIM Studio Residency program is a brand new initiative for providing individual artists with space and support for their work.

SHIM’s inaugural Residency Season will launch in the Fall of 2017 and will welcome our first four residents, providing each with 100 sq feet of studio/exhibition space for one month. Once each resident has completed their residency period, the four residents will conclude the Residency Season with a group show organized under the guidance of a guest curator.

Residency terms in the Fall of 2017 will be available to our first four selected residents in September, October, November, and December, culminating with a group exhibition in January 2018. Applications not selected for our inaugural group will remain on file and and will be considered for our second Residency Season in the Spring of 2018. Applications received after the July 14th deadline will automatically roll into consideration for 2018 as well.

In addition to your application fee, SHIM Studio Residents will be subject to a one-time supplemental Exhibitor Fee once accepted. The exhibitor fee for SHIM Studio Residents is $300. Like all of our programs, SHIM applies no gallery commissions to sales from our exhibitions.

Applications from individual artists seeking SHIM’s exhibition and residency opportunities are accepted year-round on a rolling basis. Via our streamlined Artist Application, you can apply to our 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 all opportunities within the programs you’ve applied for during that period. Cut-off deadlines for specific upcoming projects are detailed in the application.
