We are very sad to announce that Virginia McNeice, 82, died peacefully at home on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Jini was a prolific and regionally-renowned landscape artist who drew inspiration from the natural beauty of the countryside she loved. Her work is in private collections, regional galleries, local hospitals and businesses. Jini’s art moved many people and even inspired some to begin their own artistic journey. Her artist friends valued her knowledge and insight, as she welcomed them into her studio and her life. As celebrated as she was in the art world, Jini accepted accolades with humility and grace. A quotation on her studio wall reads, “It’s the process, not the product.” She was one of the founding members of the Valley Artisans’ Market and the Village Store Coop in Cambridge. Jini enjoyed being a vital member of the Cambridge community, Hubbard Hall, Battenkill Chorale, and the Agricultural Stewardship Association. Her calendar was always full.
