Boston Globe Introduces Galeria Cubana to Boston & Talks Art & Style with Michelle Wojcik

By Megan Agnew

Michelle Wojcik knows what it is to be an island. As the owner of Galeria Cubana, the only gallery in New England to deal exclusively in contemporary Cuban art, Wojcik spends her days and nights managing every particular of her business, from hanging artwork to changing light bulbs.

"It's just completely usurped my life over the last two years," said Wojcik, of her retail venture. But hers is hardly a grousing tone. "I had never actually thought, Oh, work could be fun!"
