There are some shining stars in Atlanta's arts scene this weekend, including a fundraiser for WonderRoot, luminous photographs from Jack Spencer, and a great show of record cover art. Jiha Moon will probably shine the brightest, though, with her solo show Blue Peonies and Impure Thoughts at Saltworks. Check out BurnAway's great preview and more events after the jump.
