Beltana House Studio

A Historic 1860s Coach House Horse Stable in the eastern corner of Adelaide’s CBD

Beltana house is a unique venue where Cheryl lives, works and exhibits. In 1860, Beltana House Gallery, was originally horse stables. Today it’s a compelling and exotic place where visitors can pop into Cheryl’s studio, observe her at work and appreciate the magic, if not the inner world, of her portraits, animal sketches, landscapes and clothing.
