CEDARBURG, WI: The Cedarburg Cultural Center is proud to announce it will be hosting Grafton artist Erin Callahan Blum for the month of September as its Artist in Residence.

Known for her watercolors, Erin Callahan Blum is a member of the Cedarburg Artists Guild, League of Milwaukee Artists and Wisconsin Visual Artists.  She offers watercolor painting and drawing sessions in Port Washington and Cedarburg.  Blum considers it a gift to be able to create art and beautify the area she lives in as an active member of the Grafton Public Arts Board.  She participated in the Cedarburg Plein Air this past June and will be a participating artist in the upcoming “Covered Bridge Studio Tour” during the weekend of October 9-11 at Cedar Creek Pottery. Blum also paints in acrylics and oils. More information and examples of her work can be found on her website at www.erincallahanblum.com.
