In November of this year, an exhibition of Christmas drawings and other religious works by Fr. Iain MacLellan, O.S.B., opened at the Alva deMars Megan Chapel Art Center at Saint Anselm College. It wasn't long before the folks at WMUR television heard about this and asked to come on campus to produce a segment for their program "New Hampshire Chronicle." Watch the segment below.
The exhibition displays more than two decades of commissioned works by Fr. Iain, who is director of the Chapel Art Center. Fr. Iain started producing his distinctive Christmas watercolors for an annual Christmas card to be sent by Fr. Jonathan DeFelice, O.S.B., president of Saint Anselm College. Soon, the Saint Anselm Abbey also commissioned Fr. Iain, a member of the abbey, to create a Christmas card.
Fr. Iain works year round to create the drawings that are eventually turned into the Christmas cards, and which he calls meditations on the Christmas story.
