The show “Roden Crater and Autonomous Structures,” at Pace Gallery’s midtown location, features six beautifully realized bronze-and-plaster models of different spaces inside the crater. There are also photographs, including an aerial shot taken from the artist’s plane.

Several of Turrell’s “Autonomous Structures,” finely rendered white geometric forms that invite viewers to experience light in different ways, are also on view.

Prices are $7,500 to $100,000. Through April 20 at 32 E. 57th St.; +1-212-421-3292; http://www.pacegallery.com.
