Peacock Visual Arts

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.

The Last Stand // Marc Wilson
- 29 March — 5 October 2014 *on now
The Last Stand is documenting some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the British Isles and northern Europe, focusing on military defence structures that remain and their place in the shifting landscape that surrounds them. Many of these locations are no longer in sight, either subsumed or submerged by the changing sands and waters or by more human intervention. At the same time others have re-emerged from their shrouds.
The exhibition at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen will show a selection of 22 images from the series, including those from locations in Scotland, The Northern Isles, Northern France and England.
