Nichols School features work by The News' Adam Zyglis

Western New Yorkers are used to seeing the work of Adam Zyglis, The Buffalo News' Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, on the editorial page of this newspaper or in their social media feeds.

But rarely have they had the chance to consider his prolific output in a curated exhibition, which can lend a fuller understanding of the themes, issues and burning concerns about American democracy that course through his diverse bodies of work. A selection of Zyglis' cartoons and illustrations on local and national issues, on view through Nov. 9 in the Nichols School Art Gallery, will provide just such an opportunity.

Buffalo News editorial cartoonist Adam Zyglis takes on subjects local and national with an unmistakable visual style and wry humor. These works are on view in the Nichols School Art Gallery through Nov. 4.

"I produce my daily editorial work to capture a single moment in our national or local dialogue, so to see a body of my work together in a space allows me to take a step back and view my work from a wider perspective," said Zyglis, who began his career at The News in 2004 and won a Pulitzer for editorial cartooning in 2015. "I hope the presentation of my editorial cartoons in a collection reinforces how each piece is one part of a greater conversation I have with the reader, or in this case the viewer."

"Drawing a Reaction: The Editorial Work of Adam Zyglis": Through Nov. 4 in the Nichols School Art Gallery, 1250 Amherst St. An opening reception is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 19.
