Excitement fills the air at Julie Ahmad Art Studio + Gallery in ATX as a delightful new addition has joined the team. Meet Blu, a charming Cavapoo puppy, who has wagged his way into our hearts and is here to spread joy to all who enter. Blu's arrival marks a new chapter for the gallery, as he becomes an integral part of the welcome committee, bringing a burst of enthusiasm and playfulness to visitors and team members alike.

Blu's two fave current pieces in the gallery are from the "Color Therapy" Collection. It's not a surprise they are blue!

With his soft fluffy fur, Blu instantly uplifts spirits and brings a smile to everyone's face. As part of the welcome committee, he greets patrons with his puppy like charm and wagging tail, instantly making them feel at ease. Blu's presence creates an inviting and comforting atmosphere, making the gallery feel like a home away from home. Blu's enthusiasm for art is contagious. He happily strolls alongside visitors as they admire the breathtaking artworks, serving as a constant reminder of the joy that art can bring. His adorable antics and playful nature add a touch of whimsy to the gallery experience, creating a harmonious blend of creativity and warmth.
