Art Print Notes:
This print of the Wheatley Administration Building on the campus of Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus is a special one to me. After all, this is where I spent my undergrad years in college!
Well, not in this building of course, but I certainly think it represents the campus in my mind. Georgia Southwestern has, as I hope you can see here, a beautiful small town campus in rural South Georgia. For me, it was a great place to grow after high school. For those who haven’t read my story you might be surprised to know that I didn’t spend my years in Americus studying in GSW’s art department. I almost turned down that street once. I signed up for an intro drawing class as an elective, but I went exactly one day. The large list of supplies scared off this poor college student! No regrets, life unfolded as it was meant to, but it’s always interesting to ponder what if!
At any rate, if you’re here, most likely you’re interested in the art, and this scene captures one of the buildings that forms part of the historic core of Georgia Southwestern. The Wheatley Administration Building was built in 1918. The college itself only dates to 1906. It started life as the Third District A&M School. By the time I started at GSW, it was Georgia Southwestern College. When I left GSW had been promoted to a State University. The Wheatley Building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
It’s a beautifully maintained example of Neoclassical Architecture. The big dome over the top is truly iconic I think. Whenever I see it, I think of my years there. They seem like yesterday even if they weren’t!
I’d love to know what brought you here. Are you another Georgia Southwestern Alumni? Or perhaps you’re the proud parent of a graduate and are looking for the perfect Georgia Southwestern graduation gift? I hope you’ll pause for a few moments and share your story and what this Americus art print means to you?
Wonder what past print buyers think?
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!!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
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!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
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 got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
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!
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
