Sapelo Island Lighthouse - Georgia Coast Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.

This Georgia coast metal 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?

Metal Prints - Back Frame

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.

The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.

Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.

The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
