"I love being in the gallery when a new crate of work arrives," John-Marshall tells us of his serious artistic addiction. "We have artworks coming and going for clients from around the world. [Opening a crate] is more exciting than opening a present on Christmas morning, even though the artwork isn't mine." In particular, the young entrepreneur is looking forward to hosting a special art show for an emerging Dallas artist, Tom Hoitsma, on Sept. 22. "Dallas has a growing culture of artists and creatives that I'm fortunate enough to be friends with," he said. "Being in that culture is my addiction."Image 1 courtesy of John-Marshall Stubbs.

We love a good list, and a Best In Dallas list is even better! Today, John-Marshall Stubbs is here to give us the skinny on his favorite places in Dallas. Read on for John-Marshall's local picks for Korean eats, where to beat the heat, juicy burgers, and more. Dallas-born and raised, entrepreneur John-Marshall Stubbs was meant to do something creative. Growing up with an art dealer mother had a lot to do with it. Helping his mother out from time to time at her workplace, Kristy Stubbs Gallery in West Highland Park, over the past 25 years ingrained in him a deep appreciation for the arts - most notably museum-quality period Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art. Working his way up from an art handler to an art dealer and manager alongside his mother was no easy job. John-Marshall set off to earn his MBA in at Babson University with a focus on Entrepreneurship, ultimately deciding that he wanted to create an art-centric product that could blend both of his passions. The result? Curated Clothing Co., a line of American-made swimwear worthy of collecting and adorned with artwork from creatives around the world. Each artist brings his or her own style to the brand, making it an eclectic mix of rotating products that he now offers on his online shop. Read on for John-Marshall's Best In Dallas list!
