I guess I'm not sure why you are putting a TextCell inside a Grid. Why
not just put the text itself in the Grid. Or put the text in a Pane,
which gives you better control of wrapping.

text = Style[StringJoin@Table["bla, ", {180}], FontFamily -> "Times",
    LineIndent -> 0];

graphics = Framed@Graphics[{}];

Grid[{{Pane[text, 300], graphics}}, Alignment -> Top]
