Members Trip with artist in residence Anna Macleod, Water of Leith Walkway to SNGMA

Monday 7 August 2023
Thanks to everyone who came along.


We are delighted to welcome Anna Macleod to ESW for her REACH Scotland Residency. During her residency, Anna wishes to develop a research and sculpture making project as an edition of her series of works ‘Water Conversations’, The Water of Leith is of interest to Anna as a way to talk about the redemptive qualities of water in both its physical and metaphysical forms.


I’m interested in how meaning forms organically through symbols and through appropriation.
