Really excited to confirm that my forthcoming solo exhibition 'FEED' at Vane gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne (August 2018), has secured Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England. Importantly, this funding will partly go towards to production of three FREE public events: an artists talk, a seminar and a workshop. Even more excited to move this project forwards, more details to come soon!
Tyler Robarge, Director of Texas based IRL and URL gallery, 'Omni-Modern' has recently written a short text, 'Zara Worth and Swipe-Specific Art' which is available to read on the Omni-Modern website.

Roots and Wings is an exhibition held at The House of Blah Blah, Middlesbrough exploring the themes of girls growing up around the world. Inspired by a study which stated that Middlesbrough was the worst place for girls to grow up in the UK. How do other girls get brought up around the world, and what culturally and ethnically differences do we teach on girls for us to grow up so differently or similarly? Artists from around the world have contributed to this exhibition. Artists involved are, Bex Massey, Susanne Wawra, Barbara Ash, Zara worth, Sadie Hennessy, Victoria Rose Cookson, Mary Lou Springstead, Cath Walshaw, Barbara Bervoets, Elizabeth Black and many more!
