Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster
our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it.


“So, as this question gently occupied the backdrop of my mind, I made drawings inspired by my intangible sense of absolute smallness and undeniable belonging that I felt in the greater ecosystem around me, where human destruction felt minimal and distant and where I felt a sense of peace that I had not felt in a very.long.time.”  
- Lydia Gravis, resident 2022
