Weatherspoon's show is part of a senior art course that is the capstone of the art degree program at APSU.

The exhibit will consist of many clay vessels and wall hangings, all intricately carved with lines to create patterns and textures. The various themes carved on her pieces derived from Weatherspoon's interest in both manmade and natural lines and patterns in everyday life.

“The lines, patterns and textures that I add to the surface of my vessels are a peaceful place for me to exist,” she said.
