Pike founded his own art school in Woodstock, New York, where he taught in the summers, and he also contributed memorable covers to a variety of magazines including 'Colliers', 'Reader's Digest', 'Life', 'Fortune' and 'True'. In 1966, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art invited the artist to participate in "200 years of American Watercolor", the landmark exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the American Watercolor Society.
