In 1996, a collection of 34 paintings, by Sonoma County artist David Peterson, were purchased by J.C. Leissring Fine Arts. The body of work was originally commissioned by John Fairweather, owner
of Prez Records. The work, inspired by photographs chosen by John Fairweather, was painted during the period 1982 through 1992.
This collection, now known as The Fairweather-Peterson Collaboration, will be kept as a single work, as they were initially conceived.
