“Most unusual shop in Carmel”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Personable and talented transplanted Brit sculptor, Steven, is often there in the shop and up for a "chat" if not dedicating one of his monumental creations somewhere else in the state or country. As an owner of two of his wonderful works, Inna and Crystal, I am still a regular visitor to his interesting and constantly changing Dolores, Carmel shop; eyeing the new affordable (to me) bronzes and seeing if my ever lengthening wish-list needs reprioritizing. Worth many visits, it is the first place I show up when on an excursion from the bay area.

“So fascinating to walk in and watch the artist at work”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

If you go, and you definitely should, be sure to bring a treat for Wellington, the resident dog. My teenage kids had fun petting him while I browsed the gallery . Steven Whyte is very talented and it was unique being able to just walk in and watch him at work. We enjoyed spending time in his gallery so much that we purchased a small sculpture of Wellington to bring home with us.

“Talented sculptor, on-site and full of information. And the dog is cute!”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Steven Whyte is usually at his studio, sometimes even working, always ready to discuss one of his works and full of clever anecdotes. The sculptures are evocative and thoughtfully created, each one with a personality of its own. Art claims its rightful home, and one of these creations is likely to claim yours - it's just a matter of choosing.

In a town where galleries often represent many artists, it's nice to visit one where you can discuss the process and the outcome with the artist himself.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Steven is a very talented artist and unlike some, is very approachable. Visitors to his gallery can see him at work and talk with him about his art, which is very unusual, as most artists have salespeople as buffers. Also make sure you visit with Welly, his four-legged salesman.

This artists skill speaks for itself and the staff is friendly and professional. Steven Whyte himself is charming and entertaining in his own right. A beautiful little shop full with artistic treasures!! I was delighted to leave with a piece for my own collection. . I highly recommend you see for yourself. I know I will always remember our lovely trip to California each time I look at the beautiful pieces I purchased.
