‘Magical’ grand opening at Thatcher-Young Mansion

For the last decade the Thatcher-Young Mansion has been used as a community arts center and the home of the Alliance for the Varied Arts. The AVA dissolved and merged as part of the Cache Valley Center for the Arts which manages the mansion along with the Ellen Eccles Theatre and the Bullen Center. Saturday, Jan. 22, the Thatcher-Young Mansion re-opens and the grand opening includes a magical ribbon cutting at 2 p.m. The ribbon will be magically reassembled and cut again and again and that may be because a longtime professional magician is one of the new tenants. Richard Hatch and his wife Rosemary, an accomplished violin performer and instructor, have opened the new Academy of Magic and Music in the mansion. The historic mansion also houses Levi Sim’s S-Designs Photography and The Gallery, a place for local artists to sell their work. Following the magical ribbon cutting, there will be violin and magic performances at 3 and 4 p.m. The Serendipity Quartet performs at 6 p.m. and a silent art auction will be held to benefit the Ferguson family who recently lost two sons through a fatal traffic accident.
