Gallery Grand Opening Celebration Coming May 17th to Downtown Denison!
Award winning, world renowned guitarist Russ Hewitt has been playing guitar since he was eleven. He explains his style of play as “not true Flamenco, jazz, Latin, Cuban or Brazilian but a fusion of styles, sometimes combined together simultaneously without worrying about what particular rules that go with each style.” Russ says there is a “Latin/rumba base” to all his songs but each unique in its own way. He saw an opportunity to get play time for his music with Smooth Jazz Radio embracing similar artists in his genre. Russ Hewitt’s recordings, “Bajo el Sol” and “Alma Vieja,” have produced four Top 40 Smooth Jazz singles, Made the ballot in five categories for the 52nd Grammys Awards, enjoyed a ten week stay at #1 on the Music Choice satellite cable television Smooth Jazz playlist and maintained a constant presence on the Smooth Jazz indie charts for over 16 weeks.
Hewitt has endorsements from Godin guitars, Radial Engineering, Analysis Plus Cables, Morley Pedals, V-Picks, Voodoo Lab, BBF pedal boards and DSL effects plus a monthly column in the guitar magazine ‘The Sound’, and continues to extend his boundaries into soundtracks and commercial work having just recently won a Telly Award for his work on ‘Parent Compass.
Here is a video of Russ performing live with his entire band to a piece entitled Byzantine. It is one of my favorites.

The Red River Railroad Museum will be opening their doors late during my Grand Opening celebration for your enjoyment. They are also located in the Katy Depot just next door to my gallery.
Come see pioneer heritage that has been carefully preserved for you. The Red River Railroad Museum is located inside the restored Historic Katy Depot in downtown Denison, Texas. Just one hour North of Dallas, you will find thousands of treasured memories from the golden era of the railroads.
A museum filled with thousands of rail related artifacts, rows of display cases, every wall covered with photos. Multiple collections of books and maps, everything covering railroad history in the Denison area and beyond. In 1872, the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railway established a railhead in the wilderness just south of the Red River in Texas. The town of Denison grew up around it with 3000 folks moving into the new settlement in the first 100 days. The rapidly growing city soon came to be known as the Gate City of Texas.
Denison is famous for numerous historical firsts in the country. These include having the first interurban railway in Texas between Denison and Sherman in 1901. Although no Golden Spike Event was celebrated in the city, the first North-South Trans-Continental rail link occurred in Denison on March 13, 1873.
The Katy Depot is the former passenger station and general office building of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. The depot was the center of operations for the railroad till it's merger with the Union Pacific Railroad on August 12, 1988. Also called Union Depot it was the transportation center of the city and was used by other railroads. These included the Frisco and the Houston and Texas Central later to become part of the Southern Pacific Railroad.
