New to Boston, Parisian artist Aurelie Galois took a deep breath, gathered her oil paints and ventured forth on a unique mission to get acquainted with her adoptive city: Every Friday, for an entire year, she painted a portrait of a stranger.The result is "Friday Face," a collection of all 52 spontaneous works and the poignant handwritten vignettes Galois scribbled about each of her subjects.After about 10 portraits, Galois realized she had the makings of an exhibition.Visitors to "Friday Face" say they're moved by the humanity the 52 portraits and vignettes represent.As Galois mulls over whether to take her show on the road, she's also considering a sequel – possibly one more sharply focused on a specific demographic such as young people or women, featuring larger-format portraits coupled with video."Friday Face" is on show at Boston's French Cultural Center through July 2 .
