when Holt joined him as an apprentice.
Working on "Sacred Dance of the Muses"
at the Morganton Municipal Auditorium
constituted a one-year crash course in the
skills needed to complete a fresco.
Then came more work with Ben Long:
helping create "Suffer the Little Children,"
at the E.H. Sloop Chapel at Crossnore
School, in Crossnore, North Carolina, and
additional frescos at a hospice facility in
Charleston, South Carolina, and at Wingate College.
Afterward, Holt gravitated back to
Asheville, selling his own art, always interested in capturing something of life outside the frame.
Haywood Street Congregation's extensive service mission relies on numerous
volunteers, and Holt has become a fixture, joining the congregation for meals,
sketching all the while, absorbing the atmosphere.
"Fresco captures something about
ourselves and our community for posterity. It's not only for these people but for
a thousand years from now. That alone is
why I'm doing this project."
See haywoodstreetfresco.org for fresco
events and viewings open to the public. Fundraising is ongoing.
