Art Print Description:
Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, is simply one of those places that’s reached a sort of legendary or mythical status. For people who love music, especially music of the mid 20th century, seeing Sun Studio in person must surely be something of a musical pilgrimage.
Sun Studio opened its doors in January of 1950 at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee. It was initially known as the Memphis Recording Studio but shared the building with Sun Records. What would become known in due time as Sun Studio is credited with the first rock and roll recording. Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats recorded that single – “Rocket 88” in 1951. It was a place that over the next two decades saw the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Charlie Feathers, Ray Harris, Warren Smith, Charlie Rich, and Jerry Lee Lewis. And it wasn’t just Rock music. Country, R&B, and Blues greats also cut records at Sun Studio in those golden years of music in the mid 20th century.
Sam Phillips sold the record label in 1969 and the studio was closed for a number of years but never forgotten. Sun Studio was later re-born and today’s artists have recorded under the same roof as the legends of the past. And Sun Studio has become something of a mecca for people visiting musical Memphis today.
I wanted to capture that feeling of the building as an iconic part of the history of modern music. It’s a building that’s more that the sum of its bricks and mortar. It’s the history that happened here, the great musical artists that created here.
Have you visited Sun Studio perhaps? Or maybe you’re looking for a gift for a friend that loves the music that was recorded there? Maybe you have a wall of classic LP record albums on display that would work well with this square format artwork? Whatever your thoughts I’d love to hear what attracted you to this particular piece of Memphis art!

I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
