Magie Dominic writes:

“The Gown,” a large fiber art installation, examines the word “peace” or “stillness.” The fabric which constitutes “The Gown” represents a global response to an artistic request. In the late 1990s I contacted writers and arts organizations in several countries, inviting people to send fabric pieces which I would then sew into an artwork, with the goal of illustrating a symbolic hope for peace or stillness. Across borders and cultures, across races and faiths, the majority of people worldwide—all strangers to one another—responded with lace. A symbolic global language seemed to exist in reference to peace and stillness.

“The Gown” has been on exhibit in Toronto; The Yukon; New Brunswick; and New York City, including an exhibition at The United Nations.
