Sturdy realism conveys a moving vision...Perhaps the most lucid and decisive paintings here are by Eleanor Day of Philadelphia, who offers intense imaginary visions of women’s lives today... (Victoria Donahue, Philadelphia Inquirer)

Recent Reviews of Eleanor's Work:

Day’s painting is clearly a woman’s artwork, engaging the senses with heavy perfumes from fertile flowers, warm glowing candlelight and the nurturing female touch. (Marie Flower, Chestnut Hill Local)

Especially interesting—and controversial—is Eleanor Day’s striking oil "Pope Benedict, why hast thou forsaken us?", which evokes something of Day’s familiar narrative images, but with a sharper edge. Pictured against the framework of a cross are seven young women of today, subbing for seven widely revered saints. Here Day’s highly resonant figure art enters a new stage, mellow depth of feeling for better recognition of women as role models pervades this painting. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
