Art Print Notes:
I have to admit that I did not know the full history of the Savannah Theatre when I started on this particular artwork. I simply loved the old art deco style and the big neon sign that proclaimed Savannah in large illuminated letters.
But the history of the Savannah Theatre goes back far beyond this building. In fact, the Savannah Theatre is arguably one of the longest running theatres in the US. There’s been a theatre on this sight since December of 1818 which means the Savannah Theatre has a 200 year birthday coming soon. Obviously it’s entire history wasn’t motion pictures and even today, live shows continue.
As beautiful as the building is to me, I think I’m more impressed knowing its history. It’s been burned, had its roof blown off in hurricanes, and it always came back. In 1948 the last building on the site burned. The Art Deco design we see now opened its doors in 1950, which makes the art deco design so much more understandable.
There’s a generation of Savannahians out there who grew up watching movies here. And in more recent years tourists and locals alike who have enjoyed musicals on the stage at the Savannah Theatre. It seems to be such a special place that I’ve noticed there are lots of wedding photos beneath the marquee and the big Savannah sign.
So my artwork tackled a larger than life location it seems, but I think based on the reaction that I delivered a print equal to honoring such a big piece of Savannah’s culture. There’s a sense of the place as well as a sense of the weather. Even though it’s painted, I feel as if I can hear the gentle rain when I look at this! There’s a sense of atmosphere in both the literal and metaphorical sense at work here. Not only did I have fun making this, I think it’s fun to simply sit and stare at it…
What speaks to you in this Savannah Theatre artwork? Do you like this art print because you have deep roots in Savannah or, like me, are you simply a visitor who loves the feel of old Savannah? I hope you may take a moment to share your thoughts with me.
Wonder what past print buyers think?

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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.

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.
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 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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!

Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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.
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.
