The Cathy P. Walling Visiting Artist Endowment

Clay artist and painter Cathy P. Walling ’78 was passionate about sharing her creations with everyone, and in many ways her art was designed for that purpose.

To that end, her son, Luke Walling, founder of Temprano Techvestors in Newton, has established two new funds to support Appalachian State University’s Department of Art.

The endowment will support the Department of Art’s visiting lecture series and the renovation of a large portion of Wey Hall into an open display and gallery space housing student art and a senior studio area. The renovation fund will support improving existing classrooms and office space, creating flexible work areas and providing cutting-edge equipment for faculty and students.

Cathy Walling passed away in January 2014 following a 10-year battle with leukemia. She lived in Sherrills Ford.
