Rumor on the street has it that there is a new exhibit by Maloe Vansant. We searched and found that her show Little Pieces of Me opened a few days ago at Itakos Gallery, curated by Akim Alonzo. We had never heard of this gallery and soon realized that it had in fact only recently opened it’s doors to the public. We teleported over and found ourselves in front of a large gray building. The build, by Gully Rivers, is outstanding; the layout, the vast space, the textures, and the minimalist decor provide the perfect setting for a gallery. Currently on display here is Maloe Vansant on the ground floor, Akim Alonzo on the first floor and Imani Nayar, ARnnO PLAneR, Paola Mills and MM (Mysterr) on the second floor. There is an elegant wine and piano bar on the top floor as well. The photographs are beautifully mounted and the space is easy to navigate; one is left with the sense of visiting a gallery or a museum. Bravo Akim, every aspect of this is so very well done.
The images by Maloe I believe have never seen before, whereas the work by the other photographers have all been seen on Flickr. We lingered a bit longer on the ground floor taking in Maloe’s photographs. Her images pull the viewer in, its hard to look away.

We joined the Itakos Gallery group inworld to make sure we don’t miss any future exhibits. You should too; I think we can expect more great exhibits from this new kid on the block.
