Art Cafes Events


If you’ve been to PauseTalk, then there’s a good chance you know Joseph Keenan. Probably the person outside of me who has attended the most sessions, it’s been a joy all these years to have him attend — and yes, he became a very good friend as well — and it’s with sadness that we see him leave Japan next week, as he heads back to Australia (although I have a feeling we’ll be seeing him again here in a few years).

But before he leaves, I absolutely wanted him to have an exhibition at Cafe Pause to show off the countless sketches that I always see him drawing in his many sketchbooks. “Sketchin'” is now on at the cafe, and runs until this coming Monday, July 6, which coincides with this month’s edition of PauseTalk, the last one Joe will be attending.
