The art gallery «Putti» was founded in 2000 with an aim to represent local contemporary jewellery artists. However, with local and international recognition the range of artists has been expanded to include artworks from exceptional artists from other countries as well. Now the gallery has a unique collection of contemporary and conceptual jewellery. Each year it hosts four thematic or solo exhibitions in parallel to their permanent exhibition that mainly features works by Latvian jewellery and fashion designers.

«Jewellery — well known, little known, unique, kitschy, similar, handmade, mass–produced, digitally designed, somewhat sophisticated, amateur–made, beautiful, not so decorative or beautiful, expensive and cheap. Jewellery pieces will become exhibition’s active participants by involving the audience in the world of artists’ ideas, intentions, messages, questions, irony, attitudes that have obtained their shape and physical appearance in the form of jewellery,» curators describe the upcoming exhibition.
