Original prints from Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and other artists will grace the walls of a York art gallery when The Rooted Artist Collective opens its newest exhibit "Two Bodies, One Soul" in March.

The exhibit, which opens March 3, will be a tribute in honor of the late Dr. John Ortiz.

Ortiz, who was born in Cuba, lived in Adams County for 15 years before he passed away in 2012. He was known for his work as a licensed psychologist, clinical hypnotist, author, musician, composer, consultant and international speaker, according to the art exhibit's Facebook page.

Throughout his career, Ortiz facilitated more than 1,000 programs on topics related to sound psychology and autism spectrum disorder and educated more than 40,000 parents and professionals. He also wrote seven books and several meditation CDs about autism. Read more on his website, asperger-institute.com.

Ortiz was also an art collector, and the remaining 11 pieces of his collection will be on display and available for purchase at The Rooted, 101 N. Newberry St., York, beginning March 3. An opening reception is scheduled for 6 p.m.

The exhibit – which will include original prints from Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, René Magritte, Henri Matisse, Al Hirschfeld, Peter Max and John Lennon – will be open for 30 days following the opening reception, provided the artwork does not sell out sooner.

The works, most of which include a pencil signature by the artist and a certificate of authenticity, range from $700 to $8,000.
