About This Image

Flint River Farms School – Macon County Georgia 5×7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This Macon County Georgia greeting card features artwork depicting the historic Flint River Farms School. This school was opened in 1938 as part of a “resettlement” program by the Farm Security Administration. These resettlement programs were part of a plan to relocate and train poor farmers in an attempt to improve their lot in life. In the case of the Flint River Farms resettlement program it was an African American community. The program folded in the late 1940’s but the school at the heart of the community remained one of the schools for the local Black community until sometime in the 1950’s. The school itself burned in the 1960’s.

My artwork is based off a series of black and white photos taken by Marion Post Wolcott in her work for the FSA in the depression era. Her photos were taken in May, 1938. So the image on this greeting card is a glimpse of the Flint River Farms School as it looked when it was new.

The history of this school and community is being preserved by the Flint River Farm School Preservation Society which marked the location – you can find more about its history on their site.

The Artist Behind The Curtains

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
