Peacock Visual Arts provides printmaking facilities, a digital studio and a programme of events, exhibitions and projects.
Since 1974, Peacock Visual Arts has supported thousands of artists in the production of artworks, ranging from prints to video works, photography, performance and site-specific public installations. At its core lies the idea of the multiple, work that can be reproduced in a variety of formats, analogue and digital, reconfiguring the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the audience, which can be outlined simply as – showing, making and learning. Our organisation is supported by Aberdeen City Council and Creative Scotland. Peacock’s role in the city of Aberdeen, through its printmaking department, digital studio and gallery has been to activate spaces where artists and the city’s citizens, prompted by artworks, congregate around ideas and practices that interrupt everyday routines and so-called business-as-usual. Our making facilities include the hire of digital equipment from our digital fabrication studio and the use of our printmaking workshops. On our print shop, we have a wide range of contemporary art prints for sale by local, regional and international artists, many of which have been published and editioned at the Peacock Visual Arts printmaking studio.
