Meyer East Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1657 Natalie Featherston blends trompe l’oeil and hyperrealism in pop culture-inspired paintings. She goes beyond the novelty of optical illusion in her work to present wry commentaries on contemporary art and society using the visual language of comics. The Art of Deception, a show of her recent paintings, opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Sept. 25.
