The Umstead Hotel and Spa's private collection was carefully curated, and features the works of renowned local and national artists, including famed glass artist Dale Chihuly. A dedicated art gallery which changes seasonally allows The Umstead to rotate new artists' work into the hotel to complement the permanent collection. The pieces featured in the collection are modern and minimalist, adding to the contemporary, clean design of the hotel.
Guests are invited to take self-guided tours of the hotel's collection with the aide of an art brochure that is available at the concierge desk.

The Umstead Hotel and Spa is pleased to welcome back Christopher Marley to the Art Gallery. Traveling the world in search of singular natural artifacts, each piece in his Pheromone collection is truly one of a kind. With works that feature exquisite insects, minerals, fossils, botanicals, and deep sea organisms, each element has an unusual aesthetic quality and is acquired in a responsible, ethical, and sustainable manner. Marley says, "Sharing the thrill of discovery is one of the most driving aspects of my work."
Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public. Marley's work will be available for purchase in The Umstead Gift Shop December 1, 2016 through February 28, 2017.
