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.

For upcoming Art Gallery Openings, please visit our event calendar.

Featured Gallery Artist

Amy Braun

The Umstead Hotel and Spa is delighted to welcome our newest gallery artist, Amy Braun, and her show, "A Walk Through the Woods." A Raleigh native, she is a fine art photographer and batik artist whose work is inspired by the richly textured patterns and plays of light and shade found in North Carolina's natural landscape. Bold shapes, softened by the delicate tracery of leaves, highlights and shadows, are a signature of her style. She captures the beauty of everyday life as seen in local wildlife, flowers, trees and creeks.

Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public. Amy Braun's work will be available for purchase in The Umstead Gift Shop December 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.

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