Different Strokes Art Group meets on Wednesdays in the Strathnairn Village Hall to exchange ideas and experiment with different mediums and styles. The exhibition theme has been interpreted in many ways –  the home environment, Strathnairn and surrounds, flora and fauna and our landscape generally.

All the paintings are either acrylic or oils on the same size canvas.

The original group was formed by students of Michael Winters, after he moved to Dubbo, as they enjoyed working together. Some of the original members have left the group and new ones have joined. There are currently 17 members.
