Molly Wood: The Poison Garden

November 13, 2021

February 6, 2022

Des Moines photographer Molly Wood has on ongoing fascination with the duality of botanicals—the seductive potential for flora to be toxic in one form and healing in another. A single plant might produce edible berries, medicinal roots, and poisonous seeds. Knowing which is critical. Wood’s years of research led her to medicinal gardens of medieval healers—all women, 16th-century grimoires, and, historical accusations of witchcraft.

Please join us on Saturday, November 13, 2021, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm for the Opening Reception of Molly Wood: The Poison Garden!
