Art Program


The Collection 

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.

Featured Gallery Artist

Art Exhibit at The Umstead

The Umstead Hotel and Spa is delighted to welcome our newest gallery artist, Marcy Gregg. Born in rural Texas, she expressed interest in art at an early age, however during the birth of her third child she suffered a tragic incident that left Marcy in a coma with little hope of recovery. Overcoming incredible odds, Marcy regained consciousness but had lost much of her memory. As she began to rebuild her identity, she returned to her true passion of art. Through her multifaceted exploration of the intrinsic beauty of form and the inherent properties of her chosen medium of fine oil paints, Gregg’s creative compositions reflect her love of color and texture and her own spirituality. Marcy says of her work, “It is my goal in each painting to leave something to the imagination...lines lost or an unexpected perspective found. I want my viewer intrigued.”

Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public. Marcy Gregg's work will be available for purchase in The Umstead Gift Shop August 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

For more information, kindly call 919-447-4065.
