Works by Linda Ruth Dickinson

The Umstead is excited to welcome Linda Ruth Dickinson back to the Art Gallery for her second show with us. Linda’s triptych, “Converse, Console, Contemplate”, was chosen to be part of the permanent hotel collection when we opened in 2006. It is a prominent, and much admired feature of the Bar and Lounge.

In Linda’s new exhibition, entitled “Levelling”, paintings from the Stripe and Horizon series continue her search for balance between body and mind. Conveying the present moment in mark-making but alluding to a deeper connection to nature, time, and what lies beyond is what has occupied Linda’s thoughts for many years and remains top of mind in her artist endeavors.

*This exhibition will be on view in the Gallery from Nov. 1, 2023 through April 2024. It is available for purchase through the Gift Shop.*

*Gift Shop hours:  Sun. – Tues., 9am – 6pm and Wed. – Sat., 9am – 8pm*
