Where: Beatnik Studios, 2421 17th Street;

Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Through December 28.

If you didn’t receive the memo, until further notice, Beatnik Studios is not participating in the Second Saturday art walk. But this month’s show, Easily Digestible by Lisa Alonzo, is worth noting.

Her super-textured pointillism can’t truly be appreciated until it is seen up close in person. She uses acrylic paint in cake-decorating tools to create her frostinglike dots of pigment—such as thousands of tiny rosettes. The light that reflects off of each petal and each ridged flourish as the viewer moves before the piece gives it depth in addition to the visual breakdown pleasure of her painterly pixelation.
