Who is Christie A. Wood?

Christie A. Wood, owner of Art Glass Ensembles in Denton, Texas, has always had an affinity for drawing and a love of stained glass. Though she had a successful 20 year career in the computer industry, she found herself longing to create art. Due to the fleeting nature of computer programs, which are often obsolete the moment they are installed, Christie desired to find an outlet for her creativity which would ultimately outlast her own physical existence.  The lure of stained glass; the beauty and changing nature of art from light; drew her into a new field and career.

Our Mission

AEDC’s mission is to promote Denton County as a nationally emerging Destination for the Arts by uniting artists and their invaluable supporters who sincerely believe that in so doing, the community and the quality of life is enhanced for all.

What We Do

Artists Enclave organizes art technique workshops, juried art exhibitions, theatrical presentations, dance performances, vocal and instrumental concerts, fundraisers and many other events.
