Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA, May 12, 2014 - Mountainsong Galleries on Ocean Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California is the place to find more of today's OPA and AIS Master Artists than anywhere in the World. The gallery owners Jonathan and Lucinda Mountainsong have created a friendly, fun upbeat setting filled with contemporary Master Artists, whimsical and dramatic bronze sculptures, stunning glass art and custom wood furniture. Mountainsong represents some of the greatest artists of our time from coast-to-coast.
The gallery has announced they have become the only gallery in the World to carry THE DOG MAN Marty Goldstein Stretch, Charlie (Brown Patina), Charlie (Yellow Patina) and Sylvester collection. Each family has a large, medium and small dogs. Images attached.
Born and raised in San Diego, California, Marty at a very young age became infatuated with all manner of stuffed, furry creatures. Puppy dogs with long ears or short ears, a riot of expressions, and puppies with soulful eyes, soon became his most treasured possessions. As the early years went by, those funny stuffed animals were exchanged for a real live puppy dog who responded to his master with unmitigated love and who made him laugh time and again.
At the age of 62, Marty retired from the stressful corporate world. And after taking numerous sculpting classes found himself eager to create a series of whimsical bronze dogs which he enjoys sharing with anyone who loves animals or who simply delights in beginning each day with a smile or a chuckle. These limited edition bronzes range in size from approximately 4 inches to 50 inches and are developed using the "lost wax process". The bronze dog sculptures are cast with high quality molten bronze and later have special patinas applied to bring the sculpture to life. This 3,000 year old tradition results in bronzes that owners will cherish for generations.
Marty Goldstein's dogs have found homes throughout the U.S., Canada, in Europe and in Asia. Renown Hospital in Reno and Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara exhibit the bronzes as an aid to their Healing Arts Programs. The FDR library in New York displays a likeness of Fala, FDR's prized Terrier.
To date, Marty has sculpted a collection of well over 100 dogs. He says "Whimsical dogs remind me that life sometimes gets too serious and that we need a release. Funny looking dogs do that for me" Look for this collection to continue to expand in the future.
