Museum of Brisbane's new Artist in Residence, Anita Holtsclaw, applies her unique interpretations of the Brisbane River to three large scale, ethereal, embroidered artworks in her latest exhibition Estuary, now showing at MoB.

During her residency, Anita will employ a multidisciplinary approach to her installation, which will capture the sheer, flowing and luminous qualities of water, which will spill out into MoB’s Adelaide Street Pavillion.

Using delicate materials and intricate techniques, Anita, who spent her youth on the volcanic shores of Taribelang Bunda, Gooreng Gooreng, Gurang and Bailai Country, is inspired by the mangroves of our city's river and explores the presence of water in our lives and bodies.

MoB visitors will have the opportunity to participate in the creation of the artist's work with daily reflective drawing activities, as well as the chance to speak with Anita when she's in the space each Friday during her residency.
