Saint Michael

Saint Michael

Impressive is one adjective to use to express the new sixteen foot sculpture of Saint Michael, the Archangel, Dan Pogue. He is an international sculptor living near Marble Falls in central Texas. He installed his new sculpture at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Houston. (See photo of Dan, St. Michael and Fr. Rossi)This project started in 2012. The concept was sculpted into a small model or maquette and the funding was quickly available to start the process. The sculpture is installed in front of the new school building. The Cardinal came to bless the new school and the sculpture in August, 2012. St. Michael was known as the defender. He is the archangel who fought against Satan to protect God's people from evil. The expression on St. Michael's face is portrayed by Dan as one of strength and also compassion, not about aggression. A 13" bronze model is also for sale.

Welcoming Christ

Dan is currently sculpting the five foot sculpture of Christ to be cast in bronze and installed in the remembrance garden to welcome all who come to First United Methodist Church in Marble Falls. Known as the welcoming church, it will express love to all. Matthew 12:28

Welcoming Christ
Ascension

Ascension

Dan's sculpture, "Ascension, The Risen Christ", is a 42" bronze.(See photo) It was commissioned and installed at a private residence in Round Rock, TX.

Dan and his wife Marti, recently went to tour Spain, Italy and France to study many of the sculptures of the masters. It was very inspiring and motivating. Besides religious realism, Pogue also creates in a more contemporary stylized method for diversity. It gives Pogue an opportunity to create something challenging and new.

Humble Servant

Dan Pogue’s work represents Jesus in the act of washing Peter’s feet (John 13). For countless years to come, this image of Jesus’ humility and service will serve as a reminder to all entering Riverbend Plaza of the importance of humbly serving others. The sculpture a message of grace and hope, serves as a landmark for the Riverbend campus and the city of Austin.

It represents the life giving, cleansing, and refreshing power of the Spirit of God; sourced in Christ Himself as "The Living Water". (John 4) After six months of creation, Dan Pogue’s Humble Servant was unveiled July, 2011 at Riverbend Church in Austin, Texas. The commission was made possible by a generous donor and dedicated to the memory of a long time Riverbend member.

Sculpture on Main - A Public Art Event

It is a yearly public art program sponsored by the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce. It is currently in its sixth year. The statues are on display for one year (October to October) all along the side walks and medians of Historic Main Street. Click here for more details and the call for entry form!

Twenty to thirty sculptures are picked each year to be on loan and cash awards are given. Corporate and individual sponsors help fund the event, along with the Community Art Fund. All the sculptures are for sale…. Six sales were made during 2013. "New Discoveries" by Dan Pogue has been purchased previously by the Marble Falls Library and is permanently displayed on Main Street. You can currently see Dan's "Matching Pair” in this year's exhibit, also.

Along with the Sculpture on Main event in October, 2013, a new historic sculpture was unveiled. The historic bridge in Marble Falls that goes across Lake Marble Falls/Colorado River was demolished on March 17th, 2013. A huge crowd watched it from Lakeside Park. The pieces of the bridge were used to create a large sculpture out of some of the pieces and placed at the beautiful, new, three story visitor's center. Fr. Jairo Lopez was the chosen sculptor. This will be a unique melding of history and art, with the theme, “Back From the Future”.
