Art Collection

Featuring the Works of Local and National Artists

The Umstead Hotel and Spa's private collection is carefully curated and features the works of renowned local and national artists, including famed glass artist Dale Chihuly.

The Collection

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 guidance of an art brochure that’s available at the concierge desk.

For upcoming art gallery openings, please visit our event calendar.

Featured Gallery Artist

Lynn Boggess "Life in Seasons"

Cycles. Change. Evolving.  Nature emphasizes these ceaselessly. When we experience the out-of-doors, its transcendent power is affirming and reassuring: a “new” is just around the corner. 


This show begins at the height of brilliant Autumn, proceeds to Winter’s austerity, to the emerging yellow-greens of early Spring, and finally to the celebrating blossoms of late Spring. 


"To share these works with a community who appreciates Nature, as does the Umstead, is a privileged invitation for any plein air painter. Hope you enjoy!"


Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public. Lynn Boggess’ work will be on display and available for purchase through The Umstead Gift Shop until October 15th.
