He played a vital role in the artistic and cultural life of New York City. An important teacher of painting, Heliker taught at Columbia University for 27 years, and was among the founding faculty of the New York Studio School and the MFA program at the Parsons School of Design. For more than 50 years, he showed with the Kraushaar Galleries in New York.
