Dargis was known for his large works and groupings, as well as for the smaller prints and paintings included in this exhibition. The group of three paintings (70.66.1-.3) was in the 1970 Rochester-Finger Lakes exhibition. They are united by bold color and also by the monumental, mask-like appearance of the human forms. According to Creative Workshop teacher and artist Alice Gold, who was his friend and student, Dargis was very resourceful and used unconventional materials like house paint and commercial grade printers ink to achieve the effects that he was seeking in his work.
