Strathnairn Arts

Strathnairn Arts is a not-for-profit arts association supported by the ACT Government that provides working spaces and facilities for a range of artists and crafts people and community groups.

Strathnairn Arts is a converted 1920s homestead on the north-western rural outskirts of Canberra. The 9.5 hectares is also host to a Woolshed and Village Hall all boasting stunning views towards the Brindabella Mountains. Through a membership with Strathnairn artists have access to facilities such as Ceramic Kilns, The Foundry, Studios and Paper Making facilities.

It is a facility which has been used by artists for decades but remains one of Canberra’s best-kept secrets.




Strathnairn Arts has grown into a strong community of artists working in diverse mediums. Painters, Sculptors, Potters, Textile Artists, Printmakers, Wood Workers and Installation Artists have been very fortunate to have this unique rural setting as their base.

The Strathnairn Homestead Gallery features regular exhibitions of woodwork, photography, sculpture, glass, textiles, ceramics and mixed media. Adjacent to the gallery is a small shop which displays and sells a range of works.

In the last few years Strathnairn has developed an exciting Artist in Residiencve Program, which continues to enhance the artistic working environment at Strathnairn and to encourage greater involvement of members and the public through workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations and other activities.
