‘Richard Maitland: For over 50 years, Maitland was a professional dancer, a teacher, and a choreographer, all before becoming an internationally recognized and collected artist. His work seems to pull the viewer out of time into a pensive and dreamlike world that is often touched with humor. He enjoyed the honesty of folk art, kitsch, and camp. He made many contributions to the communities in which he lived. Under the direction of Indira Gandhi, he organized and ran the International School of Dance for children. Under the direction of Mother Theresa, he raised funds for the Bengali Flood Relief Project and Feed the Hungry programs. He volunteered his time and skills at Art Street in Albuquerque. Richard Maitland passed away quietly while asleep on the evening of April 10, 2014. He was born October 25, 1925.’ (2013 Albuquerque Art Crawl.)
