Art pick of the week

A collection of artwork by Jesse DeClercq, Waiting for Hyacinth, is on display at the North Tahoe Art Center, 380 North Lake Blvd., in Tahoe City. DeClercq, who is also a playwright, a poet and a musician, says he considers his paintings to be "pop art that seek to represent mythological realities present in a culture over-inundated by a constant stream of often senseless perceptual luxuries." The exhibit closes April 1. For more information, call (530) 581-2787.
