PORTSMOUTH, NH Ã¢â‚¬â€ The law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton Professional Association will host “Portals of My Soul,” the latest exhibit of local photographer Robert Ortiz. The public is invited to view the exhibit January 6 through February 18, 2003 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the firm’s offices at Ten Pleasant Street in Portsmouth (above Me & Ollie’s Cafe in Market Square).

Mr. Ortiz worked as an assistant cinematographer in Peru for Moondragon productions, a very successful film production company. While in the Amazon, his passion and vision for the spiritual became focused, culminating in his participation in the three-man show, “The Three Graces,” which featured photos from South Church, a local Unitarian church. That exhibit, also held at the law firm, contained winding staircases, luminescent windows, and mysterious inner portals. “Portals of My Soul,” his latest show, is a spiritual journey of 30 doors and windows found throughout New England. Mr. Ortiz is a resident of Rochester and studied fine arts and communications at the University of Miami
Since its inception in 1919, the McLane Law Firm has been an active supporter of the cultural community. Hosting exhibits such as “Portals of My Soul,” is the firm’s way of demonstrating its commitment to the Seacoast’s artistic community.
