22 of Davson’s art works are held in the permanent public collection of the Millicent Art Gallery in Millicent, South Australia.

Janice Nitschke, Director of the Millicent Art Gallery was delighted for these works to feature in the Davson Arts Museum’s second exhibition in Newcastle. Flying up from South Australia, she assisted with hanging the collection. She attended the exhibition as Guest Speaker and officially opened Davson - a long journey on 28 September 2010.

The collection includes drawings, original silk-screen prints, etchings, mono prints and spatter works from early in the artist's career. It also contains examples of her woven art pieces and two preliminary drawing concepts from the 1980's and 1990's.

Davson’s affiliation with the Millicent Art Gallery began in 1981 when she visited the area on her her solo journey across much of Australia, with her dog, horse and motorbike in an old ex-government bus towing a horse float.

In April 2002, the Millicent Art Gallery hosted the final exhibition of With Gratitude For The Light which toured 14 public regional art galleries over a two year period. This extensive retrospective exhibition showcased 63 pieces of Davson’s art, borrowed from collectors including the Art Gallery & Museum of the Northern Territory, Cathay Pacific Airlines, Time Life Books, Konica Australia and James Fairfax AO.

In 2010, the Millicent Art Gallery hosted another major retrospective touring exhibition of her art, Davson ~ World Leaders & Enlightenment.

Over the years, Janice Nitschke and Sharon Davson have become good friends. They have worked together on various exhibitions, functions and events, including preparations for the canonisation of Mary McKillop, now known as Mary of the Cross in Panania, South Australia. Their collaborations and enthusiasm continues to enhance opportunities for the Millicent Art Gallery, the Davson Arts Museum and their local communities.
