Hahnemühle´s 2018 Calendar Painting Competition – Shortlist for a “Maritime World”
Rolling waves, majestic sea animals, rural coastal landscapes and colourful beach life …
Everything that is classically nautical can be found in our exclusive 2018 Hahnemühle FineArt Calendar. We therefore proudly present the video of shortlisted calendar paintings. Thank you to ALL participants who took part in the competition!
We have had an outstanding response. With more than 750 artists, from 36 countries, who have submitted a remarkable 1700 pictures. We are absolutely thrilled about the sheer volume and high quality work that we have received. There has been so much creativity in motifs, style and techniques.
Our final announcement of the 12 winners will be made in October 2017, so stay tuned for our next announcement, and keep your fingers crossed!
“I`m doing all my prints on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Ultra Smooth because of the excellent quality in the reproduction of bright colours. The paper itself has a very neutral white and impresses with an extraordinary touch and feel. This haptical experience is what I want since the prints from my portfolio box I present to collectors and curators – but of course only with gloves offered in the luxury box. I also use the paper for numerous exhibitions, where I often show the prints unframed. The reproduction of my photos is simply unbeatable!”
Stefan Falke, German photographer in New York, presents 20 prints of his ‘La Frontera – Borderartists’ series on Photo Rag® Ultra Smooth printed by Luxlab, New York, currently at the SDSU Gallery, San Diego. His ongoing project of artist portraits on the American-Mexican border had been already featured in a blog article in 2015.
“It´s a magical moment” says Paul Cunningham from The Cunningham Press in Portland, Oregon, when his analog image bursts into life. Enjoy the video about printmaking in the traditional way using alternative techniques and the new uncoated Hahnemühle Platinum Rag paper. Originally developed for platinum and palladium printing, the paper is used and recommended for cyanotype, Kallitype, Van Dyke, salt and gum printing as well as carbon printing.
