M/Gallery is a contemporary art gallery hosted on the first floor of the cultural centre M/Darbnīca. Situated in an iconic historical setting of one of the Fon Stricka Villa mansions, our doors will welcome you to the intriguing juxtaposition of the old and new, traditional and experimental, opening your minds to new discoveries.

With an exhibition programme rotating on a bi-monthly basis, M/Gallery will endeavour to introduce you to some of the most exciting art in Riga.


From painting to analogue photography to sculpture, prints and posters, we will be presenting a range of mediums on offer, all within an affordable price range, to view in person and virtually. Familiarise yourself with our artists here.


Visit our space to immerse yourself in the world of art, music, great ideas and a wonderful atmosphere. In addition to a gallery, the first floor of M/Darbnīca also hosts a concept store with vinyl records, art posters, and other merch, as well as a bar that extends onto our brand-new terrace.

If you have any questions, would like to discuss artwork purchase, art submissions, or space hiring options, please get in touch at gallery@mdarbnica.lv
