Two Houston dealers are showcasing artists who dip into the design pool. Texas talent Adela Andea employs a hypnotic hybrid of materials — LED lights, fans, snaking plastic filaments of neon, computer parts and liquids — in her illuminated installations, while L.A. it-girl Renée Lotenero deconstructs home environments then photographs the result (she’s particularly obsessed with the humble household tile). Adela Andea light works from $3,000, at Anya Tish Gallery; Renée Lotenero sculptures and photographs from $1,200, at Peveto.
