Esther E. Randall is a Professor and Gallery Director in the Department of Art and Design at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky. Earning her MFA in sculpture from Indiana University in 1978 and her BFA from the University of Georgia in 1972, she is the recipient of an Al Smith Fellowship in 1998 and two Kentucky Foundation For Women Grants in 1992 and 2007. Although trained as a figurative sculptor, Ms. Randall works with a wide variety of media and approaches, and has been exhibited widely regionally and nationally.
