The Old School - Montezuma Georgia Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale

The old school pictured in this Montezuma Georgia canvas print is one of those buildings that carried different names throughout its history. So the name of the school varies with the generations. In my time, this was Macon County Elementary School. And, in fact, that was its last use before being replaced and closed. Built in 1921, it was originally a city school for Montezuma and served all ages. By the late 1950's, after school consolidation, it was Macon County High School for a time.

The architectural style of the old school was fairly common in the early decades of the 20th century. Some refer to it as Collegiate Gothic while others call it Institutional Gothic. Whatever the name, to me it was a classic red brick schoolhouse - very similar to one my Mom attended in her hometown. Now fewer survive. After closing, the one here in Montezuma was eventually demolished. So this canvas art is my tribute to my own memories of that old schoolhouse.

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.
