About This Image

Flint River Farms School - Macon County Georgia 5x7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This Macon County Georgia greeting card features artwork depicting the historic Flint River Farms School. This school was opened in 1938 as part of a "resettlement" program by the Farm Security Administration. These resettlement programs were part of a plan to relocate and train poor farmers in an attempt to improve their lot in life. In the case of the Flint River Farms resettlement program it was an African American community. The program folded in the late 1940's but the school at the heart of the community remained one of the schools for the local Black community until sometime in the 1950's. The school itself burned in the 1960's.

My artwork is based off a series of black and white photos taken by Marion Post Wolcott in her work for the FSA in the depression era. Her photos were taken in May, 1938. So the image on this greeting card is a glimpse of the Flint River Farms School as it looked when it was new.

The history of this school and community is being preserved by the Flint River Farm School Preservation Society which marked the location - you can find more about its history on their site.

What People Are Saying

Wonderful Memories

I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

Nostalgic Masterpiece

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!

My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!

How Can I Help?

It's important to me that you know you're dealing with a person rather than some large corporation. I'm Mark Tisdale and I've worked as an artist for over 15 years now. The bulk of that time selling my work on prints and other products has been a full-time job I love. Not only does your purchase keep the lights on in my world, it simply matters to me that you are a happy customer. In the spirt of the golden rule, I want for you what I want for myself when I purchase online. And at the end of the day, I hope you may purchase from me again in the future or refer me to your friends and family.

With that in mind, if there are any questions I can answer before you purchase, please contact me so that I can assist.

And yes, the same person whose art you are considering buying is the one answering emails and tracking your order after it ships. So if your order goes awry or arrives in a less than satisfactory condition, without a doubt I want and need to hear from you.

And as an artist if you like my style but don't see the specific subject you were hoping to find today, please do tell me what it is you're seeking.
