Rose Fredrick has curated the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale, Denver, Colorado from 1996 to present. It is an annual benefit art exhibition of 80 artists held during the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. The show offers a unique view of the West as depicted in painting, sculpture and photography. Rose is responsible for the direction, the selection of artists, and the hanging, display, and lighting. She also coordinates all artist relations, marketing, and the production and writing of printed materials. More than 30,000 patrons walk through the exhibit each year, and proceeds from the sale support scholarships for students from rural family backgrounds studying at colleges in Colorado and Wyoming.

Every year the NWSS purchases what it believes to be the best of show and exhibits it in the VIP room. This is the art that we will see and what Rose will talk about, among other things.

Rose is also curator of eight unique exhibitions a year at the PACE Center for the Arts, Parker, Colorado. These range from open-call juried events and benefit exhibitions to an annual portfolio review from Douglas County high school students, as well as group shows that explore art topics relevant to Colorado artists and patrons.
