How about something like this.

      {Rectangle[{0, 0}, {2, 1},
          Show[Graphics[RasterArray[{{Hue[0.5], Hue[1]}}]],
            AspectRatio -> Automatic, DisplayFunction -> Identity]],
        Text["some text", {0.5, -0.05}, {0, 0.7}, {0, 1}],
        Text["some more text", {1.5, -0.05}, {0, 0.7}, {0, 1}],
        Text["Text Labeled Raster Array", {1, 1.1}]
    PlotRange -> {{-0.1, 2.1}, {-0.5, 1.3}},
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    Background -> Linen,
    ImageSize -> 450

The labels might be better if they were at a slant, but then it takes some
finicky work to get them positioned correctly.

This kind of labeling isn't too great because it takes up a lot of space and
there might be a better way if we knew what the labeling actually was.

I like to plot a raster array but for its elements it does not make
sense to be described by numbers. Therefore I've labeled the frameticks
manually and tried to rotate the labels to avoid overwriting for large


Show[Graphics[RasterArray[{{Hue[0.5], Hue[1]}}]],
   Frame -> True,
   FrameTicks -> {{{0.5, StyleForm["some text",
                   {1.5, StyleForm["some more text",

I don't get any error messages but the plot looks the same as without
the use of StyleForm[...]. Any suggestions?
