On Friday February 5, 2016 Robert had the opening of his first solo exhibition at the Richmond Times-Dispatch in Richmond, Virginia. Robert was asked to give an artist talk that evening preceding the opening discussing his art and how his travels to Tanzania, Africa have influenced his work. After Roberts initial talk he played two videos, "Thirty-Three" a time-lapse video of his drawings creation and the AWT conservation video. Both of these videos came from Robert's conservation project where he successfully raised funds to help the African Elephant through African Wildlife Trust.
