Editorial Reviews

He painted screaming angels and talking cows, drag queens and cowboys, frenzied fundamentalists and scenes of sacred solitude.
In Dreams Awake is the heartfelt story of William Joseph Petrie, a man loved by a myriad of friends and family who, in their candid interviews, weave the rich story of a prolific painter, tobacco farmer, political activist and passionate gay man living in the rural bluegrass of Kentucky. It's a vivid look at the man, his work and the impact his life and art continue to have. It's a peek at where a generation has been and how the collective memories of a group, held together by one common thread, create a lasting legacy and tribute to their friend, brother, uncle, lover.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
