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 Samuel Roth in The Art Gallery. Sam Roth was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1944. The focus of his paintings are best represented as atmospheric, abstract expressionism. The paintings have evolved from the influence of his spiritual studies and personal inner journey. The work has been described as poetic and mysterious. The subtle rich colors and elegant gestures leave it to the viewers imagination for interpretation, giving freedom to the abstract thought.
Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public.
