Local mural artist David Boatwright will discuss his work during a free lecture at 4 p.m. Saturday at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park, where his exhibit “Look Away, Look Here” is on display.

The lecture at 34 Prioleau St. will be followed by a party until 7 p.m featuring food, drinks and music by Boatwright’s band.

Last week, in recognition of his many mural paintings, Boatwright received the Historic Charleston Foundation’s Samuel Gaillard Stoney Conservation Craftsmanship Award for 2012.

The show, which closes May 13, includes on-site art-making. Boatwright is working on a large mural in the space.
