The artist served on the Arts Club committee when Henry Harewood ROBINSON was President (1897) and was a member of the Entertainments Committee in 1906. Once the war effort was underway, Russell and fellow artist Sarah Elizabeth WHITEHOUSE presented paintings which were sold on behalf of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry Corps stationed at Calais.
At the St Ives Show Day of 1915, the artist exhibited Land's End and a study of Hayle, and in October of that year he showed Marazion Marshes at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in Piccadilly, London. His address was Westcott's Quay, St Ives.
