Peacock Visual Arts – contemporary art centre
Peacock Visual Arts’ vision is to be the main Contemporary Art Centre in Aberdeen and the North-east of Scotland and is supported by Aberdeen City Council and Creative Scotland. We aim to play a leading role in nurturing a culture of creativity in Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland, as well as having an international reach. We also aim to be renowned globally as a centre of excellence and innovation where artists and public engage to share and explore ideas and to make and present art in exciting, stimulating and challenging ways. We passionately believe that art offers empowerment, increases understanding and improves communication. All of our collaborative projects, residencies and learning opportunities are about increasing participation. We organise an annual gallery programme of national and international contemporary art exhibitions, as well as events, talks, critical debates and workshops. We also provide the widest range of media openly available anywhere in Scotland. These facilities include the hire of digital equipment from our digital fabrication studio and the use of our printmaking workshops. In 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. Our picture framing department offers a specialist, tailored public service of bespoke, handcrafted, high quality frames, with a wide range of mouldings and mounts and finishes to suit any requirements. We also provide a range of standard sized frames.
