I am not aware of anyone using art.  But if you only need simple
rectangles and text perhaps
you can just use the gdk drawable and pango.layout ways of doing it. 
There is a _very_ small example in Gtk.DrawingArea for just text. 
Adding a pixbuf and text is not much harder, I did so for the about
box in MonoDevelop  with scrolling text, if that helps.

You might also want to look into Mono.Cairo if you want more advanced
things than the above, I believe there is an example in
gtk-sharp/sample for it.
