Kim Bernard’s sculptures often involve balls, sometimes balls you can play with. Her new show at Boston Sculptors Gallery revolves around “Wave Line,” made with scores of lead sinkers strung from the ceiling. It has a quiet presence, and in motion, if you set the balls pushing one to the next, it’s strikingly soothing to watch.

On the wall, Bernard has arrayed red and black ceramic balls into graphics of patterns made by hydrogen atoms. The balls gather and disperse symmetrically, and these pieces have a grace similar to “Wave Line,” suggesting that structure underlies all matter and movement.
