Now an exhibition of her artwork is being shown at the Indigo Sky Community Gallery in Savannah through November 8.

Elsie Hill, an assistant professor of painting, drawing, and foundations at Georgia Southern University, stated that “this exhibit is a chance for those who knew and admired Pat to acquire an original piece of her work and support the discipline in which Pat was deeply invested.”

Walker joined the faculty at Georgia Southern University in 1989. She was a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She held a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and a master of fine arts degree in painting from Cornell University.
