It was a family affair for Byron Shire artist Harley Gale, left, when he was joined by his son Will at his exhibition opening at the Lone Goat Art Gallery in Byron Bay Library on Friday night.

Harley, of Goonengerry, was a longtime practitioner in Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine and has been a skilled painter for most of his life.

He has exhibited widely and his current show, entitled The Message, is the first at the Lone Goat, with an impressive display of 30 acrylic-on-canvas works.

The exhibition runs till 24 September.

Harley says his latest opus was inspired in part by Chinese philosopher Lu Chiu Yuan’s old saying that ‘the universe is my heart and my heart is the universe’.
