When she first saw Goodland as a teenager, Tara O’Neill said she thought it was “the most exotic, tropic, Swiss Family Robinson place I’d ever seen.” Despite being forbidden to go there by her mother, she went, and her love affair with the fishing village continues to this day.

For the past three months, she has had a one-woman show of her Goodland-centered paintings, entitled “A Villager’s View,” on display at the Marco Island Historical Museum, and on Friday, before the show is taken down, she gave a talk there, on art, and Goodland, and how she combined the two.
