New Hampshire Artist Roster

Patryc Wiggins
French Tapestry Weaving & Precision Machining Advocate

AIE

Newport native and third generation mill worker turned tapestry artist and independent scholar, Patryc weaves the precision valley history and culture into her interdisciplinary community projects. Her work over the past two decades as artist/administrator of the Mill Tapestry Project and producer/director of large scale community arts ventures, led to her appointment as first-time Director of the Economic Corp. of Newport. Community murals, Newport's Precision Manufacturing Exhibit, a downtown lighting project, published literature, and historic preservation of significant downtown structures are examples of permanent works which present Newport's distinct heritage to the public. Patryc works with the Western region of New Hampshire to explore the history, economy, sociology, ecology, anthropology, landscape, architecture and culture of place, highlighting the importance of precision manufacturing to the region's transition to renewable energy technologies and sustainable economic development. Patryc is founder/President of the Guild Institute.
