Last week we ran a story on artist Richard Maitland and his show, Collected Memories, on display at Gallerie Imaginarium (301 Central NW, entrance on Third Street). The list of showbiz stars Maitland collaborated with and befriended throughout his career is extensive, and the 86-year-old can talk about them with flair and gusto all day.

One anecdote that we didn’t mention is Maitland’s passion for an arguably more current movement. He says he had a bit of an awakening when he read our steampunk feature in July. “I said, My God! I'm a steampunker," says Maitland, a self-proclaimed lover of Victoriana and an obsessive collector.

If you stop by Gallerie Imaginarium tomorrow between 5 and 7 p.m., you should take the time to catch up with him. Just look for the best-dressed gent in the house. Here are some photos I took at his Rio Rancho home:
