During the annual Aberdeen University ‘Word Festival’, Peacock visual arts presents ‘Word Order’, an exhibition curated by the Cairn gallery in Pittenweem. The exhibition explores the historic and inspirational link between poetry and visual art.

‘Word Order’ includes historic material, such as publications and prints by important Scottish concrete poets Edwin Morgan and Ian Hamilton Finlay, together with more recent work in the constructed poem.

New wall pieces and screen prints by Scottish artists David Bellingham, Thomas A Clark, Julie Johnstone and Alec Finlay will also be on display. The screen prints have been editioned by Peacock printmakers.
