Artist Reception: Keisha Manijean

June 4, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm


Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica will host a reception for artist Keisha Manijean, whose paintings hang on our Art Wall throughout June and July. The event will be held after our worship service on Sunday, June 4, 2023, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm in Forbes Hall.

Keisha explored many facets and genres of art before attending the Savannah College of Art & Design in Georgia. Her travels have taken her all over the U.S., London, the island of St. Martin, and Paris, France. Each experience profoundly shaped her world and view of people on a universal level. Keisha’s art mediums are oil, inks, charcoal, and color pastels. A defining element of her work is her “quirky use of layering.” Keisha also makes fine jewelry and specializes in prayer beads centered with healing crystals.

Keisha’s most recent works were spawned from timely meditations on the Black Lives Movement as well as the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples include “Harmony Through Conflict” in which an African American boy and a Jewish boy discover and befriend each other on the frontlines of a BLM protest.

The reception is free and open to the public, and the artist will donate a percentage of her profits to support our congregation.

The exhibit is open on Sunday mornings after 10:00 am. To schedule a viewing during business hours, please call Esther Chase at (310) 829-5436 x100.

For all other inquiries, contact Art Director, Beverly Alison.
