In 1931 Harris had an exhibition with A.Y. Jackson at the Vancouver Exhibition titled Sketches of the Canadian North.
He was on a list titled "Leading Vancouver Artists," provided to the Labour Arts Guild on April 10, 1946 by the Vancouver Art Gallery to assist in the Guild's call for entries to the second annual B.C. At Work exhibition.
In 1946 - 1947 he had work in a Federation of Canadian Artists travelling exhibition, and wrote a short statement to explain his work in the show.
He exhibited more work with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in their Annual Exhibitions in 1942, 1943, and 1949.
