Tona Wilson is based in New Paltz and is one of the first regionally based artists to be awarded an artist’s book residency grant. Her book, Stories Behind Bars, are memory transcriptions form her day job as a Spanish language translator for the county court system. This important work gives us just a little insight into the immigration, deportation and incarceration issues that fly below most of our radars. Tona’s work is often based on social issues. This is no exception.
