Abstractions painted on unusual materials, sublime landscapes that convey environmental concerns, and neon light sculptures are all included in our picks of stand-out exhibitions opening this week. Read on to discover new exhibitions opening in New York City through November 27, 2016.

New York Studio School: “Merrill Wagner”

“Merrill Wagner” has an Opening Reception on Monday, November 21, 2016 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the New York Studio School in Greenwich Village. The exhibition remains on view through January 8, 2017.

Merrill Wagner is known for her her geometric abstractions created with unorthodox materials. The artist often paints on large pieces of stone, steel and slate, allowing the organic marks and colors inherent in the base materials to guide her hand. The materiality of the monumental works represent the unchangeability of elements of the American landscape. The geometric forms that contrast the ground materials create a balance between sculpture and painting and explore the juxtaposition of man and nature.

New York Studio School is located at 8 W 8th St, New York, NY 10011. www.nyss.org.

"Two Exhibitions" will showcase paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and photography by Adam Straus.

Pace Gallery: “Keith Sonnier: Ebo River and Early Works”

“Keith Sonnier: Ebo River and Early Works” opens on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at Pace Gallery on the Upper East Side. The exhibition remains on view through January 21, 2017.

This exhibition features a new series of work along with early pieces by Keith Sonnier. The new Ebo River series employs neon tubes in bold hues along with convex mirrors and industrial materials that block, reflect, diffuse or otherwise modify the quality of the light cast by the tubes. The series is inspired by the Legbala, a river in the Congo, and the works are named after towns and tributaries along the body of water. Also on view are early pieces in neon and mixed media and two sculptures from the Tesla series.

Pace Gallery is located at 32 E 57th St, New York, NY 10022. www.pacegallery.com.
