FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington Art Gallery presents a collaborative project by aerosol artist Tim Clorius and graphic artist Matt W. Moore. “Free Form Flow: A Celebration of Collaboration” fuses ideas exploding with color and life.

An opening reception will be held 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, and the exhibition will run Tuesday to Saturday, then reopen from March 31 to April 5.

Born and raised in Heidelberg, Germany, Clorius’ work is influenced by his love for graffiti art. His interest in graffiti art and exploring the potentials and boundaries in the “hybridization” of traditional forms of painting with contemporary approaches can be seen throughout his work.

He received his education in fine arts and painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Maine College of Art in Portland, where he currently lives and works. His work has been exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally.

Moore is founder of MWM Graphics, a Portland-based design and illustration studio. He works across disciplines, as can be seen in his colorful digital illustrations, freeform paintings and aerosol art. Moore exhibits his work in galleries around the world.

The free exhibit is opened to the public, and is sponsored by the UMF Department of Sound, Performance and Visual Inquiry.

The UMF Art Gallery is at 246 Main St., Farmington, immediately behind the admissions office. The gallery is open noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday during the UMF academic year and by appointment.
