Thanks to courageous men and women like Dr. Ed Gilbert, boundaries between religion, science, medicine, art, and alternative healing are being torn down like the wall of Berlin. The growing costs of medical care, increase in the need and use of prescriptive drugs along with pharmaceutical recalls all drive countless Americans to consider different approaches toward health.
Scientists across the globe are finding more connections between known and unknown heavens ; their findings included but are not limited to the fact dark matter holds the universe together and not lights and stars as once believed. Likewise doctors are learning what shaman, gurus, priests and rabbis have promoted throughout the ages: an undeniable fiber that binds us all together, and makes us one.
We are in fact: ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
The Plano Art Association joins in this emergent philosophy as it showcases alternative healing derived from the benefit of focusing on sacred spaces: The Bridge between art and healing.
Doctors, Ministers, Scientists, and Artists have come to agree; there is merit, and benefit to focusing on sacred landscapes and works of art.
Dr. Gilbert’s very cutting edge approach toward healing will be Plano Art Association’s holiday exhibit entitled, “An Eagle’s View of Sacred Spaces”. Through oncologist Ed Gilbert’s lens we’ll be given an intimate peek at wonders of the world and sacred spaces such as, Machu Picchu, Mount McKinley (Denali), and Zion National Park. Dr. Gilbert who was given the moniker ,” The Eagle” by Plano Art Association president Talley Williams, for his expert shutter eye and access to high and majestic, sacred spaces, will have his solo exhibit the first of three, featured at the gallery during December. These unparalleled images will be accompanied by Dr. Gilbert’s message that is art a form of alternative healing.
Dr. Gilbert’s background as an oncologist spans some 42plus years practice. He has treated and facilitated healing of thousands of patients. It was in 2006 when his own diagnosis of cancer brought him face to face with the adage,” Physician, heal thyself”. It was his own bout with cancer that lead Dr. Gilbert on the quest for a different healing. Armed with a camera and a notepad, he booked a flight to Machu Picchu. What he found there can be witnessed at the Plano Art Association Gallery. This renaissance healer’s effort does not end with photography. Dr. Gilbert has amassed not only an arsenal of majestic photography but includes poetry and music designed to place the brain in a state of beta waves. In this state the body sets its own healing mechanism in motion.

Plano Art Association is a non-profit organization funded in part by the city of Plano, and also by businesses, men and women who support its effort to promote multiculturalism and diverse approaches toward art. It has served the artists and members of Plano and surrounding cities for 47 years. The organization’s president Talley Williams stands on the premise that art has the ability to bring differing cultures together to create a shift in consciousness and social/political awareness. Talley said, “I believe life is like a fractal or diamond. Each culture contributes to its brilliance and shine. Our hope is to both facilitate and be a part of that process.”
