Tiffany Exhibition Comes to Biltmore in Summer 2011

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC – Biltmore will be the site of the July 1 opening of “Tiffany at Biltmore,” an exhibition of 45 stained glass lamps created by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) and The Tiffany Studios. The exhibition will fill The Biltmore Legacy exhibition hall in Antler Hill Village through Oct. 23.

One of the America’s most celebrated artists and designers, Louis Comfort Tiffany was an established tastemaker in the late 19th century. He catered to the wealthiest patrons, including both friends and family of George and Edith Vanderbilt. Though also noted for his skills in painting, decorative arts, and interior design, it was Tiffany’s experimentation with stained glass that brought him lasting fame.

The exhibition, known as “Tiffany Lamps: Articles of Utility, Objects of Art,” comes to Biltmore from The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York City. It is an in-depth look at Tiffany’s efforts to produce lamps that balance artistry with utility and profitability. It features 45 stunning lamps in an array of colors, sizes and decorative styles, and includes tools, materials and period photographs to demonstrate how the lamps were made.

“We are delighted to host such an inspiring collection of artistic glass created by America’s most admired stained glass artist,” said Ellen Rickman, director of Biltmore’s Museum and Guest Services. “These iconic lamps were the outcome of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s idea that art and usefulness could coexist.”

Tiffany and fellow artist John La Farge revolutionized the stained glass medium by incorporating three-dimensional design elements into their works. George Vanderbilt’s, father William H. Vanderbilt, commissioned LaFarge to create several stained-glass windows for his home on Fifth Avenue in New York City in 1879. Three of these extraordinary windows will be featured in the exhibition alongside Tiffany’s creations.

Tiffany-inspired designs and events will spring up across the estate during the exhibition. Plans include special landscape touches with flower bed designs inspired by Tiffany’s use of botanicals in the Walled Garden and Antler Hill Village; floral displays throughout Biltmore House, featuring the transformation of the Winter Garden fountain into a “growing” Tiffany-style lamp; and a specially produced wine by Biltmore Winery.

Biltmore’s 26th Annual Festival of Flowers Leads Season of Colorful Clooms

Monday, March 21st, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC – More than 100,000 tulips will bloom across Biltmore in April, setting the stage for a most welcome mountain springtime.

Biltmore’s Festival of Flowers celebrates its 26th year from April 2 to May 15. The estate-wide event celebrates the beauty of George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre property and its original design by Frederick Law Olmsted, father of American landscape architecture. Biltmore’s gardens, Olmsted’s final and most grand project, are in their 121st year, and continue to mature and become more beautiful as time passes.
 
A meadow of white, purple, pink, yellow and red tulips will welcome guests at the estate’s entrance. Tulips in the Walled Garden will shine in hues of purple, orange, yellow and white. Mid-festival will feature lavender shades of alyssum, orange snapdragons, poppies, dianthus and digitalis for a rainbow-colored finish in the Walled Garden.
 
The Vanderbilts’ world travels inspire the festival’s theme this year, with elements referencing their journeys amid floral displays and other decorative elements throughout Biltmore House and the estate. The Conservatory below the Walled Garden will feature travel crates labeled “Biltmore/Vanderbilt” mixed in among the plants and flowers that thrive there.
 
Additional Festival of Flowers activities will include live music daily in the Conservatory and Winter Garden; an “Ask a Gardener” station featuring Biltmore’s horticulture experts answering guest questions; and an art show at Deerpark. Daily seminars will be held in A Gardener’s Place in the Conservatory: “Culinary Herbs and Edible Flowers,” 1 p.m.; “A Pot for Every Plant,” 2 p.m.; and “Celebrate Spring with Wreaths,” 3 p.m.
 
Festival of Flowers coincides with the estate’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, April 24, on the front lawn of Biltmore House. Hunts will be at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Registration begins two hours before each hunt, and closes 15 minutes before each hunt.

There’s More Christmas to see at Biltmore this year

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

ASHEVILLE, NC – Biltmore celebrated several milestones in 2010, and each has influenced this year’s Christmas display. Both the annual Festival of Flowers and the Winery turned 25, and Antler Hill Village opened as a new guest experience. Décor that pays homage to these milestones will be evident throughout the House and the entire estate, said Cathy Barnhardt, Biltmore’s floral displays manager. “We were inspired by the legacy of agriculture established by George Vanderbilt,” said Barnhardt. “Our guests will see elements that represent the flowers in Biltmore’s gardens, gilded bird nests representing the forest surrounding the estate and décor that conveys the estate’s agricultural history.”

Biltmore’s newest guest attraction, Antler Hill Village, will assume its place in the Biltmore holiday illumination tradition, with its buildings outlined in soft lighting. Estate-gathered greenery and vintage decor inspired by an archival photo of Antler Hall during Christmas 1916 will adorn all areas of the village. From the Civil War into the 1930s, Antler Hall served as a residence and social center for many estate families. The village was built on the Antler Hall property, and is an inviting place to unwind after touring Biltmore’s grounds. At Christmastime, the village will make the perfect place to create yuletide memories with family and friends. Activities will include live music and carolers in the Village Green bandstand; Christmas-themed cooking demonstrations; holiday decorating talks; and Vanderbilt Christmas traditions storytelling at the Biltmore Legacy building. Santa will visit with children on the weekends at Antler Hill Farm.

A Vanderbilt Family Christmas

An emphasis on Vanderbilt family history plays a large part in this year’s celebration. On Christmas Eve 1895, George Washington Vanderbilt opened Biltmore House for the first time to his friends and family. In subsequent years, Mr. Vanderbilt and his wife, Edith, welcomed family, friends and the estate’s employees into the home’s Banquet Hall for the annual Christmas Party. Each child who lived on the estate at that time received a gift from the Vanderbilts.

Biltmore’s modern-day Christmas celebration is modeled from that first Christmas. This year, the seven-story high Banquet Hall will appear as if the Vanderbilt family has prepared for the employee Christmas festivities. Tricycles, dolls, toy furniture, books, horns, trains, hoops and tops will hang from the massive, 34-foot Fraser Fir tree, with garlands of evergreens, mistletoe and shining holly dressing the Banquet Hall dining table.

Christmas at Biltmore during the daytime includes tours of Biltmore House, the Gardens and Antler Hill Village. The village links to the Winery, where visitors may take a guided tour. The tour includes a complimentary wine tasting. Special seasonal seminars, such as “Red Wine & Chocolate,” are also available.

Candlelight Christmas Evenings

Biltmore House takes on a warm glow during Candlelight Christmas Evenings, even an air of mystery, creating a unique holiday experience for guests. Ballroom dancers dressed in vintage costumes glide across the floor of the Winter Garden, and choirs perform traditional music of the season. Guests may also visit Antler Hill Village (activities described below) when they attend Candlelight Christmas Evenings. The front lawn of Biltmore House will glow with a lighted 55-foot Norway spruce, surrounded by “islands” of smaller lighted trees and nursery shrubs. Candlelight Christmas Evenings will be held Nov. 12 through Jan. 1 and require a separate ticket for entry from daytime admission.

Holiday dining and lodging on the estate

The hospitality extends throughout the entire estate. Guests may enjoy a festive meal at Bistro, Deerpark Restaurant, Stable Café, Cedric’s Tavern or The Dining Room at Inn on Biltmore Estate. For guests looking to extend their stay at Biltmore, the four-star Inn offers several packages for holidays, including special New Year’s Eve packages. Biltmore boasts retail shops, all perfect for holiday gift shopping. Other activities include taking a cozy horse and carriage ride (blankets provided) and exploring acres of landscaped gardens.

Holiday decorating seminars

Guests can learn how to infuse a little bit of Biltmore into their own holiday décor by attending seminars at A Gardener’s Place. Biltmore’s talented Floral Displays team members will show how to create Christmas Wreaths (daily, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.) and Oasis Candle Rings (daily, 1 and 3 p.m.).

About the Biltmore Concert Series Artists

With hit songs like “Sailing,” “Ride Like the Wind” and “Think of Laura,” singer-songwriter Christopher Cross rose to the top of the adult contemporary music scene in the 1980s.

His self-titled debut album, “Christopher Cross,” earned a record-setting five Grammy Awards in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Sailing.” And the ballad “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which Cross co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen for the Dudley Moore movie “Arthur,” won a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1981.
His most recent recording, the jazz-influenced “The Cafe Carlyle Sessions,” released in 2008, was inspired by performances at the legendary club of the Carlyle Hotel in New York City.

Kathy Mattea is one of country and bluegrass music’s most poignant and powerful performers.

Biltmore’s Flower Carpet to Feature Living Tapestry, Aug. 20 – Sept. 12

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

ASHEVILLE, NC – Jewel-tone colors of stained glass are the inspiration for this year’s Flower Carpet event at Biltmore, set for Aug. 20 through Sept. 12, on the South Terrace of Biltmore House.

Biltmore’s third annual Flower Carpet takes its shape and color from a set of 1880s stained glass windows created by innovative artist and interior designer John La Farge. These windows, part of George Vanderbilt’s vast art collection, are now on display at Biltmore’s new Antler Hill Village.

Unlike traditional stained glass artists whose works were flat and conservative, La Farge incorporated three-dimensional elements and layers of complex plating to provide depth. This revolutionary style allowed for the rounded and faceted glass to form sparkle-like jewels. Biltmore’s Travis Murray, crew leader of the Walled Garden, created the magnificent design for this year’s Flower Carpet.

Plants have been chosen to glow in shades of red, orange, blue, yellow and grey throughout the 14,400 square-foot design. These include Iresine Purple Lady; Marigold Janie Tangerine; Coleus Dark Star fading into Angelonia’s from dark purple, lavender to white; Marigold Janie Bright Yellow; Zinnia Profusion White; Euphorbia Diamond Frost and Zinnia Angustifolia Star White; Begonia Prelude Rose and Harmony Scarlet.

On select evenings, the estate will be open for Flower Carpet Evenings. Soft lighting, beautiful sunset views and live jazz music create a special ambiance for viewing the carpet. Picnic options will be available by reservation online or by phone when purchasing tickets. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase on site. A dining concierge will be stationed at the event to assist with dinner reservations at Bistro, Arbor Grill or The Dining Room.

For additional information on the Flower Carpet event, please call 877-BILTMORE or visit www.biltmore.com.
