Current Gallery Artist: Christopher Marley
Showcasing the beauty and elegance of species more often maligned than admired, Christopher Marley’s insect artworks take the spotlight at The Umstead Hotel and Spa. Marley employs beetles, butterflies and other arthropods as an unconventional artistic medium. He displays them singly or arranged in exquisite mosaic and prismatic patterns that take full advantage of their naturally vivid colors and almost architectural forms.
His works are displayed in galleries throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan and Europe, as well as in his own gallery in Hermosa Beach, California, and are sold through exclusive retailers.
The Marley exhibit will remain at The Umstead through January 1, 2014. Interested parties can purchase his works through The Umstead Gift Shop. For more information about this show, please call 919-447-4065.
