Event Information

Exercises for the Quiet Eye (EQE) is a series of exercises emphasizing experiences of art that encourage patient reflection, direct connection, and an attempt to avoid the premature rush to understand or determine a set interpretation, for what we see. You can see a full description of this practice here.

Annie Storr is a Quaker, scholar, museum educator, and art historian. She is a Resident Scholar at Brandeis University’s Women’s Study Research Center and has devoted her career to exploring the intersection of art history and education, in theory, and in practice. In 2014, Annie had six months at Pendle Hill as the Minnie Jane Arts Fellow to polish EQE and develop its Quaker resonances. She is a long-time member of Adelphi Friends Meeting, Baltimore Yearly Meeting and for several years a sojourner of North Shore Friends in Beverly. Annie has just been awarded a 2021 Frances Shaw residency at Ragdale Art Colony, north of Chicago, to finish the book on EQE.
