Tona Wilson is a Hudson Valley-based artist whose practice spans drawing, artists’ books, and video. In the late 1990s she worked as a Spanish interpreter in New York State’s courts, prisons and jails. These paths converged when she came to WSW to produce Stories Behind Bars, a a quartet of books telling the stories of immigrants in prisons, jails, and immigration detention centers. Tona has since returned to WSW to teach silkscreen in the Hands-on Art program and will produce a new artist’s book this fall.
