Opening Reception Wednesday, May 3, 6–8 p.m.

M–F: 8 a.m.–10 p.m., Sa–Su: 12 noon–10 p.m.

Goose attacks, wild bears, and Trump in Tallahassee. Local life gets animated when editorial cartoonist Nathan Archer puts pen to paper.

Archer, who has been freelancing for the Tallahassee Democrat since 2016, will be displaying his favorite freshman year ‘toons this May in the Oglesby Gallery, located on the campus of Florida State University.

The exhibit, “The Year in Rearview,” showcases recent local, state, and national stories through Archer’s humorous lens while an interactive exhibition component encourages attendees to read the source articles that inspired each drawing.

“In times like these, free speech is more important than ever,” Archer states. “I got into editorial cartooning to try and exercise my rights a little bit more. Hopefully this show will encourage others learn about what’s happening in their community and do the same.”

It’s a passion for First Amendment rights that sparked the exhibition in the first place. “It’s no coincidence I’ll be hosting my opening reception on May 3, which also happens to be World Press Day, a day that celebrates the freedom of the press. I thought there’d be no better time to showcase editorial cartoons, which have been playing an important role in journalism since the 1700s.”

This free exhibition will be on display until May 19. For more information, visit nathanarcher.com.
