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:

Peacock visual arts also organises an annual programme of national and international contemporary art exhibitions in its galleries, often accompanied by talks, film screenings and workshops.
