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 present artist Shelly Hehenberger in The Art Gallery. A North Carolina native, Shelly's multi-panel collection, titled "Psyche Unveiled," was developed over the course of months by carefully layering mixtures of oil paint with sand, earth, resin, chalk, cold wax medium and other materials. The results are inspired by the natural world and reflect its state of constant change, according to Hehenberger.
Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public.
