About This Image
Sapelo Island Lighthouse - Georgia Coast Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This Georgia coast canvas print features a scenic view of Sapelo Island lighthouse on a sunny day. The skies in the background are cloud streaked and vivid and you can see where the island landscape meets the Atlantic ocean.

Sapelo Island is a barrier island off the coast of Georgia in McIntosh County. The bulk of the island is state owned and protected but Sapelo is also home to Hog Hammock, the last known Gullah community. The Gullah are an African American community with a distinct culture and creole language.

Sapelo Island Lighthouse is on the southern tip of the island. It was built in 1820 to aid navigation for ships coming to the port at Darien. It's the second oldest surviving brick lighthouse in the US. For decades the lighthouse was in ruins as a result of severe damage in an 1898 hurricane. From 1905 to 1934, a metal light tower stood nearby to replace the lighthouse but it was eventually relocated to Michigan. In the 1990's the state undertook repairs and Sapelo Island light was restored to its 1890 appearance. It was also added to the National Register of Historic Places. The light was re-lit but it is not an official navigational aid. But it sure looks lovely doesn't it?

Have you visited Sapelo Island Lighthouse or do you simply love old lighthouses? I hope you'll share what attracts you to the artwork on this canvas print?

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 ❤️

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!

Canvas Prints - Product Information

Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.

After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.

When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.

After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
