There's very few art galleries in Soho, and nothing down there is reasonably priced. You'll find the densest concentration of art galleries in Chelsea (20's between 10th and 11th), so that's best for browsing. Arguably the "best" galleries are here. More traditional art is sold uptown (around the met and around Madision and 57th street), and there's new gallery districts developing in the Lower East Side and Chinatown. The last two will probably be the cheapest, but real art is not cheap (and shouldn't be, as it should provide a living to the artist).
