Rising Stars

A night of Rising Stars! An intimate night where we showcase the newest artists to the Native Guitars Tour family. As we have various size stages, we always welcome new artists, and we use this as a stepping stone into Native Guitars Tour. Pre-production meetings ensure we set high and safe expectations to take artistry to the next level. This is our fifth year at Tractor Brewing Co. (Wells Park).

Festival Artwork

We want to thank @jeff.suina.art for his contribution to this year's festival poster artwork. Jeff is an amazing potter and graphic artist from Cochiti Pueblo, NM. We asked Jeff if he would create something that aligned with what he thought about Native Guitars Tour. Jeff came back and created a beautiful pottery border design and said, "this a reminder to keep moving forward..." We are blessed to have a traditional Pueblo motif to share our event. 

Jeff Suina is skilled in creating pottery in the traditional Cochiti Pueblo method, and he works with contemporary materials as well. He draws his inspiration from a variety of subjects: astronomy, botany, quantum mechanics, science fiction, architecture, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the traditions and past art of Cochiti Pueblo as well.

A self-described "technology nerd", Jeff has a robust history in 3D modeling, animation, and visualization. He is also versed in the cryptocurrency world and creates non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of his art. His main goals as an artist are to share his ideas with the world and to add a sense of beauty, humor, awareness, and balance.
