For a trip like this I had to send all my equipment and frames ahead of time. I decided to paint everything 11x14 for the show, making my packing easier.
I boxed up the frames with the blank canvas boards attached in them with offset clips and screws. All the hardware and hanging wires were setup as horizontal paintings. This allowed me to change my mind and make a verticle if I needed to and still have enough wire to hang it.
My paints and gear were also boxed up and shipped ahead of my arrival.
By doing this I was able to only have a carry on bag and camera on the flight, saving me time in the airport.
