Flying in the face of the constant noise and debate over the Separation of Church and State, UNT printmaking graduate student Adam Rowlett has found a way to forge beauty from the chaotic warring between religion and science. Partnered with the McKinney Avenue Contemporary (MAC), Mercantile Coffee House presents the Missouri native’s newest exhibition, Gothic Abstract, with an opening reception 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday at 1800 Main St. Inspired by the geometric lines inherent in nature, Gothic Abstract “questions the connections between religion, science, myth, and mathematics,” but also presents them, perhaps counterintuitively, in harmonious symbiosis, “explor[ing] the many ways we learn about the world around us, and how these perspectives might shape us as human beings.” Rowlett’s Gothic Abstract runs through September 8.
