I was just doing something like this. The small-AspectRatio trick didn't work for me: The space is still full-sized because GraphicsArray reserves a block of space of the same size and shape for every graphic in the array.

Here are a three more useful actions:

(1) Use PlotLabel for text over the graphic. Hint: "PlotLabel" can be specified for any individual Graphic as well as GraphicsArray.

(2) If you have not already set up a frame for graphic, then use the options, Frame->True and FrameLabel->{<lower label>, None, <upper label>, None}. Hint: You can have both Axes->True and Frame->True; normally makes a mess, but can be useful here.

(3) You can place Text anywhere, including over or under. Hint: Place Text inside Prolog or Epilog in a high-level graphic from Plot, etc.

Hope this helps.
