From its origins as a printmaking studio in 1974, over the years Peacock has developed into a vibrant centre offering open access workshops for printmaking, photography and digital media and hosting many exhibitions each year. Peacock is now the main Centre for Contemporary Art in Aberdeen and the North-east of Scotland.

Our master printmakers have worked with many renowned Scottish, UK and international artists over the past decades, always aiming for the highest quality and innovative outcomes. These fine art, limited edition prints are on display both in our shop and online on our Flickr website and online shop:

HELL YEAH // FEAST YOUR EYES

Hell Yeah // Feast Your Eyes

  • 27 June — 18 July 2015 *on now

From Saturday 6 June, Hell Yeah will be taking over Peacock Visual Arts to draw a sugar loaded, popcorn poppin', over indulgent large-scale illustration installation on the walls of our main gallery! Hell Yeah actively encourage viewers to visit them in the gallery throughout the duration of the installation in order for you to engage with their creative process, with questions and interaction with artists welcomed.

Once the installation is complete the gallery will be closed throughout the day on Friday 26 June to prepare the space for the official Closing Party, which will feature previously unseen work from the artists hung directly on top of the installation. This guarded nature of the Closing Party is intended to provoke viewers’ curiosity, urge you to explore the artwork further and also offer a fresh perspective of the exhibition as a whole. The closing party will take place on Friday 26 June, 6-8pm, all welcome.

The finished exhibition will then run until Saturday 18 July 2015.
