Call for Artists

From September 9 through September 12 at the Kraft Center in NYC, OSR is presenting “Pause Press Play” an Art Film and Spoken Word collaboration.  

Because the space can still accommodate more pieces of art, we are sending out a last minute call for artwork which is related to 9/11 healing.  We will be presenting a slideshow which will loop between film showings on the wall of the gallery.

Do you have a piece of art which is related to 9/11 healing?  Please send a high rez image of your work to Rachel Hughes of the Pause || Press Play > Project.  raehughes (at)
Please include:
Title of the Piece
Short Description of the Piece
Artist Name
Short Bio
Headshot (optional)
Contact Information (phone, email, website)
Are you a NY artist?
If selected, can you get the piece to the Kraft Center by noon on Sunday?
Piece must be ready to hang and have all appropriate hardware
Out of State artists may be able to overnight their piece after acceptance into the show.  There is also some floorspace for sculpture or installation pieces.  If your work is for sale, please give us the price. Otherwise it will be listed as NFS.
There are also some speaking opportunities still available if you would like to speak on healing through the arts.   If you have a film, film recommendation or short media piece that builds awareness, please send a link to submit.
Art Overview 
Globally we are all connected by the shocking events of September 11th, 2001, our world is now forever altered and has experienced over ten years of PAUSE. It is now time to PRESS PLAY. To ‘release the grief’ and begin healing we have created an artistic approach to building awareness
and raising funds for much-needed educational and healing arts programs.
On September 11th 2011, the “PAUSE || Press Play >” collaborative successfully launched its year
one exhibition in Miami at gallery and event space. Thanks to generous sponsorship by gallery patron’s the 2012 show launches in NYC for 3 days only, September 10,11,12. Advanced tickets can be purchased at  All donations are tax deductable and
benefit the Creative-Holistic healing arts programs provided to youth and families at Art Studio World.
