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.

"Branching Out: North Carolina Contemporary Artists Interpret Nature"

A Group Exhibition - Presented by The Umstead Gallery + Artsuite

During the last year, the world has experienced a global pandemic, economic, social and political unrest, and limited gatherings with friends and family.  People around the globe have longed for connection and have sought inspiration and connection in nature. The Umstead Gallery is a destination where nature and art unite. The permanent art collection and the dedicated gallery space at the Umstead Hotel present an opportunity for visitors and our community to engage with art and experience new perspectives on nature.

This Spring and Summer, the Umstead Gallery and Artsuite will present a group show of notable contemporary North Carolina artists inspired by the natural world.  We are delighted to welcome Hannah Cole, Jim Lee, Tim Lytvinenko, Beverly McIver, Thomas Sayre, Randy Shull, Shelley Smith, Leah Sobsey and Damian Stamer to display their art work at the Umstead Hotel and Spa.

*This show will run from April through July 2021, and The Gallery artwork is available for purchase through the Umstead Gift Shop*
