Art Print Notes:
There are some landmarks that are as much about a time as a place. And I think the Atlanta Roxy fits that category. When I moved to Atlanta in the late 90’s, the Roxy was one of the music venues in town. I have to admit, though, that I never saw a show here. In my years in Atlanta, there was one band I had planned to see and they had to cancel at the last minute. But I know my experience is not the norm as the Atlanta Roxy is one of those places that I always seem to encounter people with memorable stories about a night out there.
The Atlanta Roxy opened as the Buckhead Theater in 1930. Built in the fashionable Neo-Baroque style it was one of the first purpose-built theaters for movies with sound in the Atlanta area. It would change hands several times before becoming the Atlanta Roxy, a place to see live music in the now infamous Buckhead bar district.
By the time I left Atlanta, it’s time as the Roxy was passing into history. It had been closed for renovation and I’m ever so glad I got pictures of that colorful and vibrant marquee before it fled the scene. When renovations were complete, it re-opened again as the Buckhead Theater and with a much more sedate appearance when compared to the music venue of my memory.
Neighborhoods change, buildings change, but our memories last us a life time. And even though I don’t have personal memories of the Atlanta Roxy, I still look at it and remember listening to the local rock stations advertise what was on that night at the Roxy. It takes me back to that era as much as the city of Atlanta itself.
I included the Roxy in my series of Atlanta landmarks because, at the time, it was part of the local fabric of the city. Now this art print has become a nostalgic look back to boot.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.

I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.

I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
