Our spaces: Peacock Visual Arts

Peacocks Visual Arts – A creative powerhouse in the North East of Scotland

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 WORM 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.

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. We sell our work in shop or online.

“Friendly, warm and welcoming. Peacock Visual Arts is a practical and educational environment which accommodates a wide and varied audience, I would highly recommend The Worm as the only active Gallery currently available in Aberdeen, check it out if you are visiting!”
