Exhibition Opening – Kevin Ebi: Five Minutes in Nature

Join us to celebrate the opening night of Kevin Ebi: Five Minutes in Nature. Beauty is all around us, although our attention is usually diverted elsewhere. If we free ourselves from distractions, just five minutes in nature can transport us to a world of wonder. Five Minutes in Nature follows photographer Kevin Ebi’s journey to find deeper connections to the natural world. In a world where we often say that a great picture is the result of being in the right place at the right time, Ebi shows us that wonder can be found anywhere at any time.

Doors open at 6, with charcuterie from Mable Roads and music by Norm Karin. At 7 pm, join us for an artist talk by Kevin Ebi as he shares the experiences behind some of his images, and discusses how seemingly everyday encounters have left lasting impressions.

Exhibition opening receptions are free for RTPI members. For non-members, regular admission is required. Registration is encouraged for all. You can also register by emailing us at, or give us a call at (716) 665-2473 and speak to one of our Visitor Experience Associates.

Kevin Ebi is a nature photographer and writer based near Seattle. He fell in love with nature early in life during frequent outings to the three national parks in his home state of Washington. His passion for photography developed later when he realized the keen observation it demanded helped him to appreciate nature even more. His images have been used by publishers ranging from National Geographic to BBC Earth, and art prints are in public and private collections. Two of his pictures have been featured on U.S. Postal Service “Forever” stamps, including a special release to commemorate the National Park Service centennial.
