He exhibited work in the 1948 Stanley Park in Pictures exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Norris had work in the 1948, 1955, and 1957 annual B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
He exhibited with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in 1955, 1956, and 1958.
Norris's sculptures can be seen around Vancouver - the crab fountain at the Vancouver Museum being perhaps the most prominent. His work has also perhaps suffered the most in the public's hands, though. The large pinwheel stainless steel sculpture, originally placed in the plaza of the Pacific Centre Mall at Georgia and Granville street, was moved to storage and then apparently destroyed.
Norris created a sculpture that sat on the northeast corner of Cambie and Dunsmuir streets in downtown Vancouver, at the west end of the Georgia Viaduct. The piece had no name, as Norris told the Editor in a telephone conversation, but was simply "a bridge marker", as the Romans once placed markers at their bridges.
