Member Business Spotlight – Katalyst Gallery

As you walk into a sea of colors, artwork, one-of-a-kind sculptures and home décor, you can’t help the overwhelming feeling of creative inspiration that bubbles up. That is exactly what owner, Sarah Christiansen goal is for her visitors. “I wanted to create a unique place that inspire people to create or buy art,” Christiansen said. “I’m an artist and like to go places that make me inspired and keep me inspired.”

Christiansen has been a local to the area for the past 12 years.  She opened her store in September 2010. The store’s motto is to be ‘the driving force behind art and design in the Greater Lansing area.’

Katalyst features artwork and gifts ranging in price from $5-$1500. In addition to stocking some of her favorite gifts and artwork, Christiansen features her own handmade jewelry along with local, fair trade and designer pieces.  Each month Katalyst features a new artist. Mark Kranich will be the artist featured in August.

Stop in Katalyst located at 1214 Turner Street and be inspired! For additional information call 517-708-8916 or email at
