SHIM provides you with exhibition opportunities for your artwork, afiliations with exhibition spaces for your projects, a digital presence on multiple major art websites, and much more.
With SHIM you get more than places to exhibit your work, you get a whole networked community that supports you and what you do.
JOIN A NETWORK
Once you’re in a network, individual costs are reduced and opportunities are increased. Artists in a SHIM group can maintain their individual statust with gaining more places to exhibit, discounts on the costs of being an artist, and a promotional program for the 21st century.
“When our group joined SHIM, we got a ton in return. Within six months, we had two gallery shows exhibiting over 60 pieces of art and sold 4 pieces. The cost to everyone was far lower than it would have been without everyone sharing in the risk. And out of the four sales, all proceeds went to the artist!:

CURATE ALUMNI SHOWS
What can we say? As a group administrator and curator, you have the abilities to find a place and all the tools you need to curate a group show. We’ve done this already six times for SHIM in the past 3 years. And you can too!
“Having access to SHIM, I was able to find a group of artists that fit my curatorial concept and held a successful gallery show.”
– Wilson Duggan @wilsonduggan
PARTICIPATE IN ART FAIRS
Once you form a group or join one, you can request participation in one of many art fairs that are currently available on the SHIM.NETWORK. All you have to do, is complete the information form to be considered. Once accepted, you get to run the fair and put your group’s work up for sale.
“Because of SHIM, I’ve shown at fairs in Miami and New York so far, and I will be at Basel this June.”
– Leah Schrager @leahschrager
ORGANIZE SOLO EXHIBITIONS
With SHIM, your group could sponor solo shows at a myriad of locations worldwide for a limited fee and not only promote a single artist but the full group.
“Through SHIM, I found a space to create new works and then the support to host a two-week solo show.”
– Michael McKeown @mckeownart

With so many shows and art fairs taking place in a year, how do you stay connected? SHIM provides the tools you need to get connected and stay connected to art lovers. In life these days, you need to be everywhere. That’s why SHIM includes y you in at least four fine art, digital platforms as well as all the shows and fairs open to a growing collector base.

With the new age of collectors buying art online, we have you covered. SHIM is the only place where you as group of artists can get access to multiple websites (currently four) where SHIM posts your profile and work. And we keep it updated with sold pieces and new pieces.
“Within a month, SHIM got me access to four art websites and now my profile and artwork are being shown to more than 3 million visitors a month. I couldn’t have done that by myself.”
