The major art areas of the Central & Western Desert region are: Lajamanu, Yuenduma, Utopia, Papunya, Haast Bluff, Hermannsberg, Santa Teresa, & Ernabella. Many different styles and mediums in art are practiced in this region.
The best-known communities are: Utopia for its batik work & paintings. Hermannsberg for fine Pottery. Papunya for painting.

Some of the important dreaming stories are:
