Her art has traveled in group exhibitions throughout Europe, Canada and the United States; most recently her work was included in an Italian show on Inuit art called "Immaginario Inuit: Arte e cultura degli esquimesi canadesi." Oshuitoq's work can be found in numerous collections in Canada and the United States, including the Anchorage Museum of History and Art in Alaska, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull, the Museum of Anthropology in British Columbia, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
