We happily announce a Gallery Exhibit featuring Jean (Chin) Waite
May 20 – June 14, 2021
Jean was born in Chuncheon, South Korea. She holds an
Associates Degree in applied art from Soong Eui Women’s
Junior College in Seoul. Her first career position was with 8th US Army at Camp Ames where she worked as an illustrator. She later moved to the United States and married her husband Howard. After Howard retired from the Army, they moved to Vermont along with their daughter Diane.
During her time as an Army spouse, Jean had opportunities to travel. Her interest in art was rewarded with visits to numerous museums and galleries. Her favorites were the Louvre in Paris and the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
While living in Vermont, Jean started painting again being influenced by the beautiful surroundings of Vermont. To help develop her technique, she studied painters she admired and purchased DVDs from Richard Schmid, Daniel Keys, and Kathy Anderson.
In 2019, she had her first gallery exhibition at Equinox Village which was a success. She is honored to come back to Equinox Village to have her first solo show. For this exhibit, Jean wanted to express her love and affection for flowers and share her passion with others.
Jean’s other interests include yoga, ballet, and playing piano. Jean has been working at Price Chopper in Granville, NY for more than 20 years as a cake decorator. Her joy is creating and decorating a variety of cakes for all ages.

Heather M. Bellanca
Born in Montana by a fluke, I grew up in Middlebury, Vermont and consider myself a Vermonter. My favorite childhood activities involved drawing and/or making things and my career vision was illustrating. But being a person interested in everything, in addition to the arts, I graduated from the University of Michigan with credits all over the map. (Whoever thought it was wise for a 17 year old to make decisions about her future?!)
I have kept my creative juices flowing with a lifetime of freelance projects and border in Salem, NY in the energy-efficient, next-stage-of-life house I designed to include a studio with a view over an ever-changing, rural landscape with a sky of soaring hawks, crows and buzzards. Our two children are grown and flown the coop so we nurture chickens, two horses and a charismatic cat.
The summer I retired from the bookstore the artist Joan Duff Bohrer invited me to join her at her barn home/studio to paint once a week. I explained that I didn’t really paint but would love to give it a try. Every painting is a learning experience which I try to tackle 4 or 5 days a week.
I’m all over the map in my learning process & subject matter – trying still lifes, figurative, landscape and occasional non-representational expressions. I often work from photos of local scenes that are near and dear. The more I learn, the more I learn there is to learn. Thanks for coming to see my student work!
