23 of Davson’s art works are part of the permanent public collection of the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre in Muswellbrook, New South Wales.

Brad Franks, Centre Manager for the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre kindly lent them to the Davson Arts Museum gallery in Newcastle for the Museum’s third exhibition. Brad Franks attended as Guest Speaker and officially opened the exhibition Davson - towards harmony (showing 15 November 2010 to 17 February 2011).

The collection includes drawings, original silk-screen prints, etchings, mono prints and spatter works from early in the artist's career. There are also examples of Davson’s woven pieces and a preliminary concept drawing from 1985.

Davson’s affiliations with the region began in the 1980’s. She spent time there during her solo journey around Australia (her apprenticeship in becoming a freelance artist). She was touched by the generosity and assistance provided by the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre.

In 1989, she donated an original woven silk-screen print titled Hawkesbury Apparition to the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre as an expression of her appreciation. It has since hung in many of the gallery’s exhibitions.

In September 2011, the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre will host the major retrospective exhibition, Davson ~ World Leaders & Enlightenment.

Davson values this positive working relationship and the benefits gained for the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre, the Davson Arts Museum and the public who participate.
