Cate McQuaid reviews Dana Clancy: Sightlines at Alpha Gallery, Boston, on view through April 5, 2017.

McQuaid writes: "[Clancy] transforms vitrines, windows, the glass surrounding the MFA’s courtyard, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s greenhouse into mirrors and lenses. Images bounce and bend, rippling through and transforming familiar places into enigmas.... Ordinarily, we parse experience to distinguish art from actuality, ricochets of light from visions in the mind’s eye. Clancy collapses the distinctions, and invites us into a world of fancy and surprise."
