Markings Gallery in Bath is pleased to present Colors That Don’t Go Together (And Other Crimes)
exhibit by local fiber artist, Hector Jaeger. His hand-dyed and crafted rugs will be displayed during the
month of July with an artist talk and reception on Thursday, July 11 at 6p.m.
In this exhibition Jaeger expresses his masterful construction of the traditional and functional object of
the flat-woven rug, while at the same time using that object as a platform for exploring color and
challenging assumptions about what a hand-woven rug should be. Hector sees himself as “an agent of
color, responding to, rather than directing, the evolving design.” Jaeger has developed and expanded on
an exaggerated slit-weave technique that allows him a wide range of color compositions. His work is
driven by this challenge and by his desire to allow others to experience a familiar object in a new light.
Markings Gallery is located at 50 Front Street, Bath, and is open from 10:00 – 5:00pm daily. For more
