He was a highly regarded painter, and greatly admired teacher. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States, received many honours and is found in many museum and private collections.
In 1952 he and a small group of artists founded the Tanager Gallery on 10th Street in New York City. It became a fulcrum for the early days of exhibitions for the art of the time. Cajori was also a founder in 1964 of the New York Studio School, a unique 'atelier' art school that still exists today.
