Yes, you add the filter when displaying the widget and then you should
probably remove it.

Something like this:

class My_Widget {
  private $current_instance;

  function widget( $instance ) {
    $this->current_instance = $instance;

    add_filter( 'getarchives_where', array($this, 'getarchives_where') );
    remove_filter( 'getarchives_where', array($this, 'getarchives_where') );

  function getarchives_where( $sql ) {
    // Do something with $this->current_instance['post_type']
