Andrew Holmquist Book Signing


On the occasion of the new publication EARY REFILLS by Andrew Holmquist and Tyler McKeel, CSG Office will be having a book signing on Saturday September 20 from 2-4PM.

Written by Tyler McKeel
Artwork by Andrew Holmquist
Risograph printed, 74 pages, perfect bound
First edition of 100

Tyler McKeel’s debut collection of short stories and humorous musings is a celebration of real and imagined worlds in all their outrageous absurdity. Andrew Holmquist’s artwork goes tit for tat in absurd dexterity, stretching the boundaries of the body from head to tip-tapping toe with a playful wink and a nod. Printed in velvety fluorescent pink, teal, and yellow, this book features 29 retina-burning drawings that compliment the whimsically twisted tales within.

Tyler McKeel is a writer based in Northfield, Minnesota. Andrew Holmquist is an artist based in Los Angeles, California. Andrew and Tyler have been friends since childhood, collaborating on several high school musical productions before graduating to book-making in adulthood. This is their third, and longest, artists’ book to date.

Hilma’s Ghost featured in Artnet + NYTimes


Hilma’s Ghost (Dannielle Tegeder and Sharmistha Ray) were recently featured in and the New York Times for the gallery’s booth at The Armory Show.

“It’s inspired by Hilma af Klint—it’s about the rise of spiritualism and witchcraft and the feminist undertones of that,” Tegeder told Artnet News. “We used processes of spiritualism and divination, and called upon the spirits of women artists who are not alive to activate the work and work through us.” –

Diana Guerrero-Maciá: High Touch @ The John Michael Kohler Art Center


Gallery artist Diana Guerrero-Maciá is currently featured in the group exhibition High Touch at The John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI.

High Touch brings together six artists who embrace technology as a medium and tool to research, ideate, and assemble their intensely handcrafted, resolutely analog artworks. Whether sourcing images from the internet’s endless scroll or using digital processes to fabricate components of their works, they create highly tangible objects that transform the virtual into the physical.

High Touch is up through February 13, 2022.

Anne Lindberg: AbStranded @ The Everson Museum of Art


Gallery artist Anne Lindberg is currently featured in the group exhibition AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY.

Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large—through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more—and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today’s digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Abstranded is up through January 2, 2022.

August 21, 2021



The gallery will be on Summer Break from August 22 – September 7, 2021.
