Book Signings with Kieron Williamson
Saturday 28 July, Jarrold Cromer 10am-12pm & Jarrold Norwich 2pm-4pm
We are delighted to welcome nine year old art prodigy Kieron Williamson who will be signing copies of his new book Coming to Light. While on a family holiday in Cornwall the five-year-old Kieron Williamson was bought a drawing pad and crayons to fill the time when he wasn’t playing by the sea. His parents describe what happened next: “The following morning we assumed Kieron had gone to watch TV but an hour or two later, he returned to show us his picture page filled with sky, sea and boats. We were amazed...”
And so was the rest of the world. Kieron’s story has since become an international sensation and now, in his tenth year, this young artist continues to amaze those who see his paintings. The growing public acclamation of his artwork, the media interest that greets each new exhibition, and the clamour by collectors to own pieces of his work, have in turn led to this book.
About Coming to Light
Coming to Light, as the title suggests, traces the development of the artist, providing many examples of his work from the earliest days to the present time. But it also attempts to provide the reader with the background story to how a mother and father came to terms with bringing up a child within a family unit, a child-genius who prodigious talents attract the world’s attention and considerable financial reward. This is Kieron’s story.
