University of North Georgia - Dahlonega Greeting Card
Ships within: 2 to 4 business days
This Dahlonega 5x7 greeting card captures the beautiful architecture of Price Memorial Hall. The 1879 building was built over the foundations of the US Mint that burned in 1878. The mint was part of Dahlonega's gold rush history and had been deeded in 1873 to what was then North Georgia Agricultural College. When I last visited Dahlonega, this was still North Georgia College before the merger with other colleges in the region. In fact, over the years I've had a lot of friends and co-workers who were alumni of this college, but my only experience was my treks into the mountains, mostly in autumn to see the leaves change. And there's a hint of fall color in the leaves in this artwork which are turning a suitable golden color that complements the gold covered steeple of Price Memorial Hall.
This Dahlonega artwork captures a little of the history of the area. Both because this is the oldest surviving building on the campus and because of the golden steeple. Gold leaf was added to the steeple at what was then North Georgia College in 1973 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the college. It's certainly a beautiful site against blue skies isn't it? In the rolling terrain of Dahlonega, the steeple can be viewed from many vantage points around the city so there's little doubt this is a familiar site if you've visited.

What People Are Saying
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!

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.
