Brian, One approach to this problem is to use the three argument form of Rectangle, where the third argument is one of your chart plots, with DisplayFunction -> Identity. Put the Rectangles inside a Show[Graphics[{...}]] statement. You can lay out your rectangles in your display area just as you wish, one for each plot. Use a Background in the Show statement to frame your plots. One trick is that you have to adjust the AspectRatio of each plot to match the aspect ratio of its rectangle. A complicating factor is that this works only approximately because you have to account for space taken by the plot labels. You may have to experiment a little to get something really nice. You can also add text above or below the rectangles using Text statements.
