Molly Wood: The Poison Garden

2021-11-13

2022-02-06

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!
