About the Artist

TJ Cunningham was raised in Addison County Vermont. He grew up with an appreciation of fine art and a deep connection to the rural Vermont landscape. Cunningham is a nationally acclaimed plein air painter who revels in capturing the beauty of Vermont’s farmland in all seasons, and especially the effects of the varied light and shadow on the landscape. In 2014 he was recognized as an emerging artist in Southwest Art’s “21 Under 31.” He has won awards from Plein Air Salon, The Portrait Society of America, the Art Renewal Center, and the Oil Painters of America.

“Knee High” was painted in 2019 and is valued at $3,500.00. The painting captures the essence of summer in Vermont, rows of corn growing, lush green fields and warm summer light.
