Catherine J. Smith Gallery at Appalachian State University will present an artist talk and showcase by Jessica Meyer Nov.13 at 7 p.m. in the gallery. The event is free and open to the public.

The showcase will conclude a weeklong workshop in which Meyer, a.k.a. Tattoo Jessica, guides students through the process of making skin transferable lithography to create prints to be worn on the skin.

Informed by the historical and cultural roles of the tattoo, workshop participants will create a variety of prints that will be worn on the skin. At the end of workshop, students will display their tattoos and invite their audience to participate in a living picture gallery of illustrated flesh. Tattoo will also be available for visitors who are interested in wearing one of these unique temporary works.

Catherine J. Smith Gallery is located in Farthing Auditorium at 733 Rivers Street in Boone. Gallery hours are weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free for all events. For information, call (828) 262-7338 or e-mail (
