At present, yes.

GTK+ 2.8 will include Cairo, so the Gtk# bindings for GTK+ 2.8 will, by
necessity, bind Cairo.

However, GTK+ 2.8 hasn't been released yet, and may be over a year away
from release, so don't expect immediate satisfaction on this.
(Especially considering that the Cairo API is currently unstable...)
