However, when I go to the finder, the ogrekit window disappears from view (even though other texshop windows are visible), so I have to memorize the name of the file, go to the finder, locate it among files with similar names, and so on.

If this is a one-time need, then it's easiest to use grep, as in

grep '\\includegraphics' filename.tex

If it's something you would use frequently, you could define a macro somewhat along the lines of 'Show Files' but easier, with a 'do shell script("/usr/bin/grep ...), grabbing the search term, properly escaped, from the clipboard and the current filename from #FILEPATH#, and sending the output to a new TeXShop window.
