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 – making, learning and showing. 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/project space The W OR M has been to activate spaces where artists and the citizens, prompted by artworks, congregate around ideas and practices that interrupt everyday routines. Our making facilities include a digital fabrication studio, screen printing studio and relief printing studio.
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.
