The UC Botanical Garden is hosting its 4th annual exhibition of botanical drawings done by members of the Northern California Society of Botanical Artists.

The 40 illustrators who are represented in the show have spent countless hours learning about the botany of plants and countless more transferring that knowledge to paper.

The results are finely detailed drawings that meticulously replicate nature’s complexity.

The show, titled Plants Illustrated, runs through Feb. 8. There will be a reception for the artists on Saurday Jan. 26 from 2 p.m. to 4 pm
