Sure.  Take a look at gimp's gtkrc sample, and copy it to your own
.gimp/gtkrc if you want, and edit that.  You can set font to any legal
X fontspec.  (cp /usr/share/gimp/<version>/gtkrc ~/.gimp/)  If you don't
like the gimp default of

style "default"
  font = "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-100-*-*-*-*-*-*"


style "default"
  font = "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-140-*-*-*-*-*-*"

and see if that looks better to you.

You can do the same for any gtk application that sources a resource
