Donna Collins Sparkles at the Slotin Folk Fest

Donna Collins at Slotin Folk Fest

A true Folk Artist from Kalamazoo, MI, Donna Collins’ exibit at the Slotin Folk Festival takes us to a happy place. Collectors seek Donna’s work as it is becoming a cult phenomenon the likes of Susan Serandon, Roseanne and Courtney Love have all followed.

Donna Collins’ collection at the Slotin Folk Fest is full of pink and glitter and smiles. All the things that fascinate and delight little girls.  Averie Olson from Woodstock, GA asks Donna about her work. Averie likes the paintings that have cupcakes. Donna has created other collections based on skeletons and other themes, but this exhibit is definitely drawing in the girls.

Apple Barrel Paint at Slotin Folk Festival

Donna was excited to meet us because she uses Plaid Apple Barrel Acrylics exclusively! She pulled some out of her touch up kit for the Folk Art Fest to show me. Donna shared, “Plaid does not fade. I have tested some and in my garage are paintings 10 years old. Plaid does not crinkle, fade or crack.”
