Our December 2022 exhibit was the
new works of SSAG founder and artist, Genece Hamby. The solo exhibit was
the inspiration for re-opening the space
in 2023 as an artist incubator, providing
artists with an opportunity to not only have a 6-week solo exhibition--but to have personal mentoring to help them grow professionally as artists.
Stillness, Beauty & Grace
Shibui Studio Art Gallery is excited to announce the new gallery direction as an artist incubator -- a six-week solo exhibition opportunity for emerging artists plus participation in our incubator professional development program.

Incubator Artist Benefits
Artists will receive:
Solo exhibition honorarium between $250-$500.
A six week solo exhibition in the incubator studio gallery featuring the art presented in your submitted proposal.

Ongoing participation in The Artist Incubator group workshops and presentations.
A public relations campaign to promote you and your art through our various print and social media channels.
Benefits of A Solo Exhibition:
A solo exhibition forces you to think critically about your work and how others will interpret it. It makes you think about what ties the work together to tell a compelling story.
Builds excitement and positive energy around your profile and art.
Motivates and challenges you to create a series of works that are cohesive and based on a theme.
Gives you an opportunity to learn new skills in the ‘business’ of art (marketing, etc).
Allows you to test the market in real life -- hear feedback first hand, view what buyers are personally drawn to.
