Volunteer with Coors Western Art
More than one hundred volunteers staff the Coors Art Gallery and special events surrounding the Red Carpet opening night gala. Volunteers come from across the state of Colorado, drawn together by their shared love for this prestigious art show as well as their dedication to raising funds for the National Western Scholarship Trust, to which the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale is the largest contributor.
Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help support Coors Western Art; however the majority of volunteering is done during the National Western Stock Show, which runs for sixteen days every January. Volunteers learn about the nationally recognized artists represented in the exhibit, have the opportunity to meet many of them, and interact with the wonderful patrons who visit the Coors Art Gallery during the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo.
The National Western's Volunteer Liaison for the Coors Art Gallery is Kathy Montgomery. Kathy's background is in commercial interior design and art consulting. Along with Kathy, Team Lead Cheryl Chamberlain shares the duties and responsibilities of overseeing the exhibit and volunteers. Cheryl, a former teacher, develops a unique scavenger hunt for the many children who come through the show each year and trains new and returning volunteers.
We are always looking to welcome new volunteers to the Coors Art Gallery, especially volunteers with art-related experience and computer skills.
