The Proud Hands exhibition in Austin, Texas, 1989, was sponsored by the Austin Women in Architecture, Austin Chapter American
Institute of Architects and the Laguna Gloria Art Museum. "Proud Hands 1989 exposes the union of art and architecture.
It celebrates those artisans who provide `the exclamation points' in our visual world, through those of the contemporary
and traditional interpretations of architectural ornament."
Of 27 artists exhibiting, Robert was one of the 11 artists picked as Jury's Choice.
