May 19, 2016, Sausalito, CA – On Friday, June 10th, Madrigal Family Winery Tasting Salon & Gallery in Sausalito will host "Homage to China", the 7th in its Art and Wine series, featuring an installation celebrating Chinese inspired art featuring the work of Ning Mercer, Denise Hazleton, and Chinese Antiques loaned by Studiolo Boutique and Legend Gallery in Marin County. The installation is curated by Shiva Pakdel. "We are thrilled to continue to support local artists and gallery partners and provide a new venue for our community to enjoy Bay Area culture and great wine," commented Chris Madrigal, Madrigal Family Winery's Founder & President.

Art came calling very early on in life for Ning. From making little mud figurines on the playground as a child, to being mentored by professionals in her adult life, allowing her to grow both as an artist and as a human being.

Ning is a celebrated painter, printmaker, and sculpturist. She says that “the process of creating art not only teaches her to be humble and honest, but presents her with the opportunities to strive for a better today, than yesterday.
