The exhibition, based on The Beatles' second album by the same name, features 14 prints that visually interpret every song on the album, as well as several of Jeter's original drawings on their lithographic stones. The exhibit marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' arrival in the USA.

"I hope my work captures a tiny bit of the wonder four lads from Liverpool gave to us all," said Jeter.

Jeter is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the School of Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, his alma mater. He also hosts the longest-running John Lennon birthday celebration in America each October 9 at Enoch's Irish Pub & Cafe in Monroe.

Jeter's prints are featured illustrations in She Loves You (2013), Jude Southerland Kessler's third biography on John Lennon. On Friday, October 3, at 7 p.m., Kessler will give a free performance entitled Lennon's Liverpool at the Meadows. She invites her audience to journey to 1950's Liverpool to trace the birth of The Beatles through rare photos and music.
