From bonfires and parades to cats on windowsills and Scrabo Tower, Trevor Wray has layered an array of imagery that forms a series of surreal encounters. The title; Over and Over and Over refers to the activity of using a single roll of 35mm film and shooting it through an SLR camera several times, creating multiple exposures within each frame. Trevor is bipolar and both the approach and the content of the work relate to this.

The ADF Gallery is a contemporary space in the centre of Belfast running a year-round programme showcasing new artwork and raising the profile of disabled and deaf artists. The ADF also runs performing arts events and workshops as part of Bounce! Arts Festival.

Disabled/deaf artists, you are invited to submit proposals for solo exhibitions as part of our 2015 programme. We are looking for a wide range of art in contemporary and traditional styles, including themes reflecting disability issues. If you are interested in presenting work in the ADF Gallery, please submit a proposal containing the following:

• Full contact details

• An outline (250 words max) telling us what you would like to show and talking about the motivations behind making the work.

• Up to 10 samples of work, in print or digital format.

• An outline of any technical requirements, such as black-out or audio visual gear.

• Artist’s biography / history of exhibitions.

Send proposals by email to (include jpgs and/or links to personal websites). Or send by post (give disks and photos). Do not submit original artwork. Ensure that your samples of work are clearly labelled with your name and a number and link this to a numbered list giving your name and details - title, medium, size.

We are also open to proposals for other types of event but this can take longer to arrange, for example if we need to do additional fundraising. To make a proposal, please follow the list above as much as is relevant. For workshops please outline your experience, tell us you would want to do and give references. For performances, give a DVD or You Tube link to a performance and/or a script.

Please submit all information by Friday 27 June at 3pm. Send to or by post marked for the attention of Leo Devlin, Gallery Officer at the address below.

iDA, an awards scheme for disabled and deaf artists based in Northern Ireland

ADAI, the unique cross border scheme which benefited dozens of disabled and deaf artists, came to an end after An Chomhairle Ealaion, the Arts Council of Ireland, announced, earlier this year, that it was withdrawing its support.

However, the ADF has now reached an agreement with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and in June will be opening a 2014-15 scheme called iDA, which will be similar to the Arts & Disability Awards Ireland scheme. This will be for disabled/deaf artists based in Northern Ireland. News will be released shortly.
