We drove past the "Art of Humor Gallery" sign on Route 9 several times a year for many years, intrigued what it could be. I was grateful we finally decided to investigate yesterday. It's further up the unpaved road than we expected... make sure to keep going straight through the intersection.

The views, landscaping and buildings are beautiful in and of themselves, and the 2 floors of Skip's artwork are indeed very funny and wry.

The $5 per person admission fee is reasonable, especially in that it will be applied to any purchase.

Skip and his wife were gracious and engaging hosts, and he even took a photo of my mom in front of one of his pictures for her!

Great sense of humor displayed in the art gallery, very welcoming and informative hosts, and stunning landscaping and views to be found at this charming and entertaining gallery! My husband and I took time to inspect every single print displayed and laughed out loud along the way. We left with a print that Skip, the artist himself, took time to chat with us about as well as the unique guitars on display. Definitely go visit if you can!

Skip was very gracious and we enjoyed seeing artwork that reflects his sly sense of humour. Worth a visit just to see the fabulous gardens - he and his wife have created a lovely spot!

We found this attraction on the internet while searching for "things-to-do" in Southern Vermont, and decided to seek it out. Easily found by GPS, this art gallery/private home/B&B combination is well worth the stop. We spent a couple of hours touring the gallery and admiring the pristine grounds visible through the very large windows. The owner and artist Skip Morrow greeted us at the door, pleasantly explained the gallery and then left us alone to view the hundreds of humorous drawings on the walls. There is a small admission charge of $5 each, but this is applied toward any purchases that might be made in the form of a discount. We found ourselves simply taking our time as we moved about the multi-level gallery, trying to decipher the sometimes off-beat, hidden humor of the artist. Simply an relaxing and enjoyable couple of hours.

If you are anywhere near southern Vermont this is a place you must visit, even if it is a detour. We found it by accident and it is the most quirky, funny,and welcoming place you could wish for.I would challenge anyone to not find something here to make them laugh out loud. Skip, the owner and producer of these wonderful exhibits is welcoming, informative and a great host. If you are anywhere near i would strongly recommend that you pay it a visit. A $5 donation wwhich is refundable against any purchase is more than good value for this experience.
