On Tuesday, Jan 14, 2020, at 11:30 a.m. Joseph Gallivan interviews Alexis Day about her new show of tapestries which is at Elizabeth Leach Gallery now through March 1. Day talks about how she blends photos with fabric, sewing, beading and painting, and how she tries to construct psychologically dense scenes from family life inside mid-century modern homes.
