If art galleries are at the top of your list when traveling, then combine your hotel stay with an art gallery. Grass Valley Courtyard Suites is an art hotel located in downtown Grass Valley and features the art of a new local artist each month.
A few words from the artist:
“I don’t know what I’m doing, or how I even got here. Okay, maybe that’s not 100% true. I am a self-taught photographer based in what has to be one of the most beautiful areas in California, Nevada County. I find that being behind the camera or editing a set of photos is my happy place, aside from family time. 11:eleven began as most things do. As an interest, or a hobby. But I discovered I have a real passion for photography. There are just so many interesting areas of photography. Everything from landscape, to portraits, street photography, events, etc. that I could never pick just one area to specialize in. So, I do weddings, portrait sessions, senior portraits, and in between scheduled shoots I wander about. Shooting whatever fits in my frame. I enjoy the challenge of finding beauty in ordinary things, finding new angles to see something, and capturing moments. Especially the moments. Those can never be replaced.”
