Peacock Visual Arts is one of the main contemporary art organisations in the North East of Scotland, based in the heart of the city of Aberdeen. We organise a rich and diverse programme of contemporary art exhibitions, performances, talks, workshops, and screenings. We work with local, national and international artists. We strive to nurture local talent, as well as bringing both world acclaimed and previously unseen artists to Aberdeen. Each year we present an exhibition every year of our workshop users’ prints, as well as featuring work from artists we have been publishing. Our main gallery is complimented by our reception gallery, offering two spaces to host exhibitions.
Feast Your Eyes at Peacocks Visual Arts
“The Woodland Portrait Project at Peacock Visual Arts gave the children a unique opportunity to broaden their understanding of what art can be. Before visiting the gallery most were anticipating that they would be shown pictures, paintings or photographs. They were all captivated and inspired by the range of pieces they were met with, particularly the sculpture and film elements of the exhibition. They loved speaking with Fiona about the processes she follows and, upon returning to school, were keen to create some artwork of their own using the themes of the artist’s work.”Jed Gilchrist
