Today at noon, master printer Bill Goldtson will be doing an informal walk-through of Greg's Recent Selections from ULAE, including prints by Helen Frankenthaler, Bill Jensen, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist and more. 
Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) was the vision of Tatyana Grosman, a Russian émigré who had settled in New York with her husband Maurice, an artist with printmaking skills. In 1957, through connections with other artists, the Grosmans began inviting painters, poets and printmakers to create limited edition artist’s books in their modest garage studio on Long Island. These first intimate collaborations set the tone for the quality of work to be produced at ULAE in the decades to follow.
