RME Downlands Art Exhibition 2018


The Downlands Art Exhibition has been much loved by Russell Mineral Equipment Executive Chairman Dr John Russell and his wife Cherylyn Russell for years, and RME considers it a privilege to be the event’s major sponsor in 2018.

RME is a manufacturing technology and services company that predominantly engineers machinery for the mining services industry.

“We engineer beautiful pieces – pieces that are a testament to human endeavours to innovate and create,” Dr Russell said.  “There’s a synergy with how artists strive to create works of beauty that elevate our lives.

“The Arts are intimately linked to materials won from the earth; from the bronze, copper and iron shaped by artists’ hands to the graphite, ochre, manganese and so on in paints and pencils. The minerals allow artists to express themselves and challenge thinking.”

RME is delighted to support the Downlands P&F, students and artists and Dr Russell invites Toowoomba residents and Carnival of Flowers visitors to enjoy more than 1000 pieces from hundreds of artists on display.
