Every village should have a store like Inspirations on Canvas!  With almost two years on Center Street in the Village of Lewiston, owner Kathy Pignatora has kept her vision of providing affordable art, while adding a mix of jewelry and gift items based on requests from customers.   Her mission was to create and sell affordable, one of a kind artwork.  With over 1,000 paintings sold since opening, Kathy truly has artwork for everyone. The store is a perfect eclectic mix where you are sure to find something for your personal collection or the perfect gift for a loved one.

You cannot miss the store with the black and white awning overlooking the creative window display and welcoming red door.  Step inside and you will immediately be impressed with the vast array of colorful original paintings at affordable prices.  Kathy has added essential oils, soaps, jewelry, scarves, purses, painted wine glasses, adult coloring books and t-shirts with her logo to the changing inventory.  Looking for a new experience to put your artistic ability to canvas?  Painting classes are offered where attendees can create their own flow painting one on one with Kathy!  She offers commissioned work, having created custom portraits of pets, houses, and landscapes. 

Small Business Saturday is important to Inspirations on Canvas.  Last year, Kathy recorded the day as her second highest sales day, followed by the Lewiston Christmas Walk weekend.  The day works for small business.  She wants the public to know that small business is an important part of the community - it adds value to the village, and keeps visitors in the area. Many of the business owners support each other; in fact, the furniture her gift items are on came from Antique to Chic, another local small business. 

Inspirations is open seven days a week in the summer, with hours changing with the season (Tuesday - Saturday 11-5pm, Sunday Noon - 4pm).  You can find the store on Facebook and Instagram, with a daily presence of photos of artwork available for purchase.  Kathy's focus on customers has resulted in establishing great relationships.  "The best advertising has been the customers. They share where their artwork has come from and often return to add to their collection."

Small Business Saturday Promotions will include: 10% off store items, free hot cocoa and cookies, as well as a chance to enter to win a $100 gift certificate!  Stop by and say hello to Kathy at Inspirations on Canvas located at 449 Center Street, Lewiston.  You will leave feeling like you have known Kathy forever and hopefully with a piece of artwork perfect for your home or office!
