Frescoes

Works by legendary North Carolina artist Ben Long. Two little churches, tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains contain breath-taking frescoes of the Last Supper, Mary Great With Child and others; located at the Holy Trinity Church in Glendale Springs and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in West Jefferson.

Completed in 2006, the fresco at The Crossnore School renders the scripture of Mark 10:14, “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” It features children who were residents at The Crossnore School.
